3) Mercado de las Ranas

Every first Saturday of the month from 12 am to 8 pm, local merchants take their store to the streets. Calle de las Huertas and the adjacent streets fill up with stalls, making for a lively flea market ambiance. The market’s curious name comes from the enormous number of frogs in the ponds of the orchards of the old Convent of San Jerónimo, which is now Barrio de las Letras.
