Every Sunday since 1870, Medina del Campo welcomes the national Cattle market. Also, people from other parts of the region were coming to town to make administrative formalities or to do their weekly shopping. That is how was created the Commercial Sunday of Medina del Campo, an intelligent adaptation made by the inhabitants for the visitors. The tradition means that every Sunday of the year, the shops are open their doors until 2 p.m.
So nowadays, the Plaza Mayor and surroundings transformed Medina del Campo into a MAJOR COMMERCIAL PLACE IN CASTILE AND LEON that is open on Sunday.

Royal Butchers’ shops
Medina del Campo is a commercial city, a city which protects its past in terms of its markets and its advanced financial status during the 15th Century. One of the most emblematic buildings is that of the Royal Butchers (1546-1562).
In 1931, the building began to be used as a food market (a use which continues today) and in the 1950s a second building bordered by the river and other elements were added to it. In 2013, it regained its original layout as the central stalls were removed and its main doors were reopened. Nowadays —Heritage of Cultural Interest— it has 15 stalls where you can buy and taste delicious food.
