  • Is held on Saturdays and Sundays in Recoleta, and serves as a meeting point for Argentines, especially on sunny days, and option of stroll for tourists. It starts near the Recoleta cemetery and take virtually the entire Plaza Francia. The craft is kind of repetitive, with different stalls selling the same things, but the climate is note 10. In some tents, it is possible to pay the actual purchase. There are also food stalls (snacks, sweets).

  • Craft is that thing: you have to like it. The fair has many leather items and objects with semi-precious stones. But the environment is worth. The square is cool. Swim by Recoleta is a program by itself. Have local musicians playing tango, rock and pop live. Sweet and savoury foods. And Brazilians, of course. Everywhere. Go without fear.

  • skip it. most of the stands offer industrialised items, lacking quality and originality. the rest are just ordinary and pseudo-hippie-chic.
  • Very nice place, lots of beautiful handmade stuff. A bit overpriced as it is a tourist zone. Worth visiting.
  • Great place to get crafts
  • Really good collection of stuff and art. Worth a visit
