  • It was opened in 1897, at the corner of Bolivar and Carlos Calvo. It first that surprises is its style and as is remains outstanding that structure of 120 years. The market retains its original internal structure, formed by beams, arches and columns of metal with veneer and glass ceilings. In the Center is perched a great dome and under the, the artisan coffee Coffee Town, which not can leave of test. Her visits invariably us back to the old buenos aires and its customs. Fruits and vegetables are mixed with handicrafts, watches, toys and unimaginable flavors seasonings. Antiquarians will won the tug of war for the jobs of yesteryear, but if these in San Telmo, cannot not go, to just block and a half from the Plaza Dorrego. I have attached a photo, did you useful?

  • 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
