Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Really invested much money in convert it. Unfortunately for my taste it is not what it was in the past. Anyway, it is worth knowing. The fruits are no longer.

  • As in a Persian market, with stalls of all kinds all over, with the River as a framework and varied gastronomy. As for walk and buy trinkets. The days of people it is difficult to get close to Park, sometimes you should leave the car away. A few meters away there is also Casino, Niní Marshall, El Parque de la Costa theatre and Chinatown simile. All this makes a lot of people come on weekends and holidays. If you think my comment well, I invite you to vote on it as useful by clicking here below, where it says "Agradecele to Mariano".

  • Ideal to go on a weekend with good weather. In the place there are thousands of markets selling furniture, decoration and household items. Features include positions and restautrantes for lunch. It is not advisable to be a rainy day as travel is 70% outdoors. During the days of the week I think that it will be closed. Good view of the river. Volvere!

  • Is a nice walk; but, nothing real tipical. Just manufactured stuff; there is some artisan products, but nothing really "catchy" to the eye. Just a nice walk.
  • It is a magical place. There are very good places to go for lunch (at night everything is closed - DIC2015), many security .... if you go by car, you must have very patience because within 20 blocks the traffic go very slow. The "artisans" have very good prices and you got to buy food, bazaar, blacksmithing, plants and flowers, decoration, regional articles and many other things.
  • The former harbor that was used to transport fruit from Tigre tot BA, now houses the largest arts, crafts and furniture market in Argentina. Easily reachable by train (from Retiro) or boat (from Sturla Viajes) from downtown Buenos Aires so makes for good day trip away from the city in combination with a visit to the river delta surrounding Tigre
  • Great fair Good food
  • Enormous and beautiful place. Lots and lots of handcrafted stuff and regional cheese and salami
