Promoting the commercial life of the Rastro: City Council initiative to enjoy Madrid Centro even more

The Nuevas Galerías of the Rastro are honored to announce the news that has already been broadcasted on Telemadrid this week. A significant step is on the way for Madrid’s El Rastro, the iconic flea market that has been a symbol of the city for decades. From now on, visitors will be able to enjoy the El Rastro experience not only on Sundays, but also on the first Saturday of every month.

“The first Saturday of every month.”

The decision to open El Rastro on Saturdays is part of an initiative promoted by the Madrid City Council, with the laudable aim of enhancing the commercial life of the capital. This news is in line with other successful projects such as ‘Everything is in Madrid‘, ‘Madrid Fashion Capital‘ and the ‘Asociación de Comerciantes del Rastro‘, all of them aimed at giving visibility and dynamism to the commercial activity in the heart of the city.

Starting next October 7, locals and visitors will have the opportunity to experience the unique charm of El Rastro on Saturdays as well. From 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., you can explore the gastronomic offerings and browse the stalls of this emblematic market. This extension of hours will allow more people to enjoy the wide range of treasures that El Rastro has to offer.

For the Nuevas Galerías of Madrid’s Rastro, this news is particularly exciting. The expansion of El Rastro to Saturdays opens up new opportunities for our stores and for everyone in our community. The synergy between El Rastro and Nuevas Galerías is undeniable, as both represent the rich history and vitality of commerce in Madrid.

On weekdays, many merchants in Nuevas Galerías open their doors to the public, too. Remember that Monday through Friday many of the merchants in Nuevas Galerías are still open during regular hours.

We are delighted to see how this initiative transforms the Rastro experience and enriches the commercial life of the capital. We invite everyone to join us in this exciting new phase of El Rastro, where Saturdays become a new canvas to explore and enjoy.
