El mercado

Every Sunday, there is an open-air market in El Casco Antiguo (the old quarter) of Oviedo. The streets are always full of people looking for deals, or just enjoying a relaxing day.


Vendors set up shop in various plazas, selling goods ranging from clothes to books, jewelry and food.


The busy streets also have dining areas where people can sit down and enjoy a snack or coffee.


Clothing items are in no short supply at the market; most of the merchandise is very reasonably priced.


Many vendors also sell jewelry, including necklaces, rings, earrings and watches.


Sundays are generally designated for spending time with friends and family, so it’s common to see parents bringing their children to the market.


Anyone in need of some bargain reading material is bound to find something interesting here.


Paintings and other art goods are also standard fare at the market.


One section of the market is held in this small park, just outside El Casco Antiguo.


The market opens up in the morning, and begins to wind down in the early afternoon, around 3p.m.


As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so vintage items like these could hold great value for the right customer.
