Down the backstreets of Lavapies – not far from the site of Madrid's rowdy El Rastro flea market, held outdoors every Sunday in neighbouring La Latina – is this old food hall that dates right back to the Spanish Civil War. The resurrected market is perhaps the most sociable in the city, especially on weekends, when most of the raw food vendors close for the afternoon and the place is given over to something like a block party.
