If you haven’t noticed already, the weather in Madrid is getting better and warmer. We got a glimpse of spring this past weekend. Everyone was soaking up the sun whether walking around the city more, exploring the many beautiful parks, and eating outside. This means spring is coming and with that the beginning of a new month: March. We have put together a list of events and fun things you should check out this month.
Motor Market – Mercado de Motores: 11 & 12
This is Madrid’s coolest market. The market takes over an old train museum in downtown Madrid. Many independent collectors and designers set up stalls with vintage goods alongside the old trains. You can find vintage jewelry, funky furniture, handmade leather goods, and much more. Currently, the market sells almost everything you can image from designer clothes to rare art and retro pieces. An added bonus is there is outstanding food, live music, and a beautiful lively outdoors space.
