  • Really love this place. There's so much to see and of course eat. It's like an indoor flea market with "stores" that range from quirky to normal. If at any point you feel the need to leave the market there are tons of stores and wine bars around. It's a fun place in a fub neighborhood.
  • This was the first time I had been though this in a very long time. It was good to see that new businesses had started up and were trying to revive the "market" experience. It still operates with some butchers and vegetable vendors and a few coffee places. Worth a stroll through.
  • Super cool. I would recommend visiting if its not inconvenient to get here. They have an awesome produce stand here
  • Very interesting to wander among the stalls which have lots of antiquities. Some sell rubbish but I'm sure there are bargains to be had. There is also a tango show and they will walk around with a 'hat' for tips. Good fun. There are plenty of cafes where it's fun to sit and people watch. Good for a couple of hours.
  • Great place to visit, especialy on Sunday due to the Feria San Telmo. The food on market is pretty good and the price is quite fair.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
