There's been a marketplace at La Lagunilla for about 500 years now.  There's something happening here every day but Sunday is the best, 'cause it's when the flea market takes over and all sorts of smaller stall holders come out of the woodwork to offer their wares – some more flea than antique treasure, but there's also a fair chance of picking up some unique souvenirs, including old coins and paintings.  You can also find all sorts of 20th Century treasures, including magazines, clothes, books, toys, furniture etc. al.  Arrive early and bring someone who speaks Spanish with you, and don't bring your trappings of wealth, they're not going to do you any favours here.
