The artsy district of Ruzafa is a natural starting point for any curious vintage shopper, and it doesn’t disappoint. A monthly pop-up market is held on Sunday mornings at El Patio, a versatile space next door to the much-loved UBIK café and bookshop. Called Il Market, it’s run by local event organizers Il Quartiere. The narrow corridor leads you to a sunny hideaway packed with table-top stalls mainly selling second hand women’s clothing, shoes and bags. Good finds include leather jackets, denim, designer labels and up-cycled vintage fabric bags and purses. El Patio is famed for its Sunday lunch paella and you can enjoy watching the chefs cooking up a feast on giant gas rings at the back of the garden. Ruzafa is delightfully peaceful on Sundays, so this is the perfect time to stroll around and soak up its famous pueblo (village) atmosphere.
