Take a morning stroll around the city and its outskirts, and you’ll be sure to find a bunch of Valencianos looking for hidden gems on the streets. There are so many different kinds of street markets in Valencia, so today we’re gonna focus on rastros (also known as flea markets). If you wanna know when and where they take place, this guide is for you!

treet markets are definitely a thing in Valencia, which you’ve probably noticed if you’ve been here for a while. Take a stroll around any area of the city and you’ll find one for sure. However, sometimes you don’t wanna leave things to fate.
During my first months here, I found it difficult to figure out where and when the markets took place and what kinds of markets there were. There were so many of them, it was confusing. I decided to find the investigator in me and make a clear overview. Today I’ll share everything you need to know about flea markets in Valencia. Let’s make this easy for all of us, shall we? ;-) 

What is a flea market?
In case you don’t know what a flea markets, let’s define it.
Don’t worry, you won’t go home scratching your body all day, no fleas are involved. But you might be able to find some framed insects. Wait, what? Yeah, a flea market is a street market selling second-hand goods. You can find a mixture of objects, from antiques to books to clothes to electrical goods to the most random stuff, so it wouldn’t surprise me if you find some bugs in a frame. 

If you enjoy shopping for hidden gems and are a fan of anything second-hand or budget-friendly (welcome to the club), then you should definitely give the rastros in Valencia a go.
