Puerto de Frutos, Tigre

4.1
#1 of 36 in Shopping in Province of Buenos Aires
Flea Market Shopping
A lively dock area, Puerto de Frutos offers a range of shops and stalls selling wicker and rattan handicrafts, wooden furniture, and food, including honey and smoothies. Most of the items sold here are fragile or too large to be easily transported by plane. If you still wish to find a memento to bring home, try browsing for leather goods and smaller decorative objects. Avoid visiting on weekends, when the market sees its biggest crowds.

Where to stay in Tigre

Tigre and its delta surroundings are chock-full of choices for accommodations thanks to their popularity with visitors both foreign and domestic. The city center around the Tigre River features a number of smaller-scale apartments and family-run bed and breakfasts, while the areas closer to the delta itself are more beach-oriented. If you're looking to enjoy the area's famously lush nature, check out a "cabana"--these rustic cabins are omnipresent in the forests and marshes around town, and allow you to wake up with the canals and trees of the delta right at your doorstep. Since many of these countryside accommodations are only accessible by boat, they usually provide most meals. Keep in mind that more rustic charm in this case can also mean hordes of mosquitos at night.

  • So first of all, the market does not really have fruits! It is named after the harbour and is not referring to the things they sell. There are quite a number of restaurants and in the shops/stalls aro...  more »

  • A boring walk there and only a small section open with some craft stalls. I imagine the place is lively at weekends but not week days (and not main season).  more »

  • A very picturesque place and a great variety of products, from regional foods to furniture of great dimension. You will not regret visiting! Considerations: very difficult to park so I recommend public transportation, train Tiger or Coast's train (more expensive), taxi, bus, remis (rent a car) or walking. It is a place that on Sundays is very (but very) full. enjoy!!
  • Amazing place! It's really worth your visit if you're planning to go on a tour to Tigres. There are amazing wood-craft furnitures among other decoration items.
  • Just a great place to go relax buy at there local stores, eat at their restaurant and go for a nice ride on the lake.
  • Many shops open every day, but weekends better. Lots of various places to eat. Looking for knickknacks or decor or even hardware such as hooks to hang things, this is the place to go. So merchants take credit cards, but most prefer cash, better discounts.
  • Prices can be insultive or incredibly cheap...depends really on what you are looking for. Furniture's prices are almost way too high for what they are. The scenary is nice.
