  • The Feria de Mataderos is in Mataderos neighborhood, so named because it housed the slaughterhouses of cattle. Outdoors, with lots of trees, stalls of crafts (leather, knives, fileteado porteño etc.) and traditional foods (choripán, bondiola, empanadas tucumanas), the fair opens on Sunday. If you're in Palermo, the 92 bus leaves you right at the entrance of the fair. If it's Gaucho or live in the West of Santa Catarina and Paraná, recognize various cultural similarities. Free musical performances, on a stage in the center of the fair or even tents, are interesting. If you go to CTG, can take advantage of to dance a little with the hermanos. My impression is of a more authentic than the fair of San Telmo, Palermo or Recoleta. It is worth moving the famous tourist spots and meet this other side of Buenos Aires. Mataderos fair you won't find luxury or cleaning mimimi, what's at the fair is us (and fun), street food (for those who are hungry and not nojinho), folk art (dance, handicraft) and especially identity.
