  • Mataderos fair is located in the neighborhood where many cattle slaughterhouses were. It is a mostly handcraft fair where you can taste typical meals. The fair opens Sundays and jobs begin to close at 15 pm. According to the climate. Tends to be very crowded by should it go fairly early and choose place for lunch before 1 pm. To take into account:-is it filled with people and have to be careful of thieves of wallets. -well look the place where lunch there are some very convenient in its quality and price and others somewhat expensive. Nice walk to do before noon

  • Sunday, March 4-still little known by international tourists (also because so far away from the city centre), this "argentine folk traditions and crafts fair" is visited especially by the inhabitants of the neighborhood and dance lovers popular. In fact you can dance in the square in front of the "museo de los Corrales Criollo" (very interesting to visit) in the shadow of the great monument to "Gaucho". Hundreds of stalls offer their wares and eat delicious street foods: Beautiful race which takes place on horse and galloped made by individual Knights pledged to push a stick into a small ring suspended over their heads. We had so much fun. To visit.

  • You should go early because it is busy. Beautiful crafts and typical Argentine food. There are stalls to buy bread, cheese, candy, pies, dumb luck and much more. There are performances of folklore. Much to see.

  • A must do when in Buenos Aires. The fair is on every Sunday. About an hour out of Recoleta. The best way there is by bus. Amazing food like authentic Parrillas, choripan, tamales, the best pastries, desserts, drinks. Lots of shows and performances. A large variety of crafts on sale. Stalls selling everything from meats, cheeses, olive oil, dulce de leche and more. A fun day for the whole family.
  • It will be a pity if you leave Buenos Aires without spending a half or full day there, despite several shortcomings like disgraced public transport accessibility, and being the place highly crowded. Nevertheless the place is more than worth it.
  • The Sunday gaucho fair hawks the best street food in the city, including two empanadas that share the same name. Look out for the double dose of empanadas salteñas: the deep-fried chopped steak empanada from Argentina’s Salta province and the Bolivian empanada, a larger, sweeter baked empanada filled with stewed chicken or beef.
  • I love mataderos market! Very Argentinian and not over pack with tourist
  • Great original Fair with gaucho music and a lot of food from the countryside. A great experience in BA
