In the Plaza de la Merced, in the middle of the street musician Peydró, there is a little market. It is not a daily market and sells souvenirs and typical market things. There are half a dozen stalls, which are quite large and sell bags, leather goods, scarves and fashion accessories. Everything is very cheap but is not always the best quality. You can lower the price a little, knowing that the objects are not going to last long. This market seemed strange, because it is in an area with high traffic. There are people coming and going along the street from Musician Peydró. And generally these kinds of stalls are in the exit of a subway, a stadium ... And not in a quiet square in the pedestrian district. The Plaza de la Merced is an important place for Las Fallas too. There are lots of parties around here during Las Fallas.
Every Thursday in the early morning, the municipal market fills up with stalls selling all kinds of goods: clothes, shoes, bathing suits, linens, churros, etc. In summer, the heat is sweltering to they change the time of the market to Friday afternoon. You can't miss the newly renovated food market, a bold architectural intervention in the former two ships of the park, next to the newly-opened auditorium (which is also fantastic).
