  • The fair of San Telmo is extensive. Found leather items, knives, candy, clothes and crafts galore. Prices are varied (depending on the quality of the product). Is a good place to buy a souvenir of Buenos Aires

  • Its strong are antiques of all kinds: magazines, books, objects, wallets, accessories, etc, etc, everything that you can imagine. Almost always at good prices and in good condition. It also has meat, fruits and some stands of food stalls. Linda structure on its cover. Worth to visit.

  • I thought the weak market, despite some antiques, is a mix of street fair with flea market. Prices also don't help, because when it becomes real, are very expensive.

  • A single market both for its architecture and antiques that can be found. It gets from a machine of cut salami to Tin soldiers. There are also sets of dishes, furniture, pictures, etc... We also have butcher, grocer, greengrocer and a local to take a coffee break. Very full for a ride and enjoy without any trouble. It has entrances on different streets
