  • The Mercado de San Telmo is a known flea market which takes place every Sunday at the Plaza Dorrego and the surrounding streets. The offer is very large and diverse, and you can easily stroll 1-2 hours. Especially when the weather is very much going on, both locals and tourists.

  • 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
