Madrids markets advisor

Residents Tip: As with just about any market there are bargains to be had as well as a minority selling goods that will fall apart immediatly. Be sure to inspect items closely and if you wish to bargain a 10% reduction on the first price offered is a very good deal. Sometimes up to 15% off can be obtained by buying two or three articles from the same stall.
