Everything is produced in the mass of its own in China. But come across and really interesting, antique things and works «Hand Maid» on peculiar collaps. These collaps are located slightly away from the main street. You can also go to the Quarter for sale of paintings. The market takes its name, one of the versions, from the word «track», which remained in the area when moving the carts from scothes to meat beams and meat processing factories.
Another version builds the name of the street to adjective «external», that somewhat more like the truth, since the street has really been the outskirt of the city and did not fall under the jurisdiction of the Madrid City Hall. The Rastro market itself is known for the records dated 17th century.
