The area
Address
Neighborhood: San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.

One of the place that touristic guides recommend to vist is the SAN TELMO.
There are several thinks to see there. Shops with leathers thinks, souvenirs, the Antiques bazaar, where you can find old and second hands thinks and curios. Also there is a food market with some small restaurants. If you have time you can walk in the narrow roads. It is a litl bit jammed but colorful.

Previously restricted to the Plaza Dorrego and its surroundings, today the "San Telmo Fair" also extends throughout the Calle Defensa. Many tents selling trinkets. So much so that the main antique dealers migrated into stores and galleries.

My wife and I made plans to go to the San Telmo flea market on Calle Defensa during the Sunday we were visiting in Buenos Aires. It was all that we expected, except my wife was hoping to see more leather goods. We saw an artist from Patagonia who we had purchased two paintings from the previous day at the street market in Palermo Soho. It was great fun to stroll down the street between the stalls. We spent about two hours looking around. I compare this flea market to the El Rastro flea market in Madrid.

So much fun! We are here now and having a great time. Lots of cool antiques in the Plaza Dorrego, vendors are very low key. And there is a group in the back part of the plaza that does a tango show that is really wonderful. I gave 5000 pesos (four dollars U.S.) because they were amazing ... be generous!!!!

This market spans the whole length of Defensa and some side streets in between and ends at a sizeable antiques/curio fair in the square at San Telmo. There are plenty of photo opportunities and many many stalls along the way selling all manner of craft goods, antiques, artworks and jewellery. Defo worth a visit with a stop along the way for a beer or two!!!

I thought it was just another art market... but it turns out to be an antiques market. And they have EVERYTHING! From empty bottles to sets of cutlery... you name it! It’s very nice to see street performers too! Tango in the streets is pretty authentic to me!

I was there in 2000 by myself and was very eager to show it to my husband this trip. It was not as I remembered it. It went for many blocks on Defensa and the side streets. I was eagerly looking for artisan gifts as souvenirs for friends. It took a while but I did find terrific handbags, great gifts. There are also great shops lining the old section "the permanent shops" of San Telmo. Worth staying a Sunday to experience it as we did.

Outdoor standa with locally made jewelry, souveniers of all types and very amicable vendors. Stopped there before visiting the San Telmo Market and enjoyed it. 1/2 to 1 hour depending on how much one wants to shop.

Great hand crafted and unique items, of you want an original item to remember your Buenos Aires trip you'll find it here. So may great items and at the end of the endless stalls is a fantastic market for drinks and food. A great way to spend a few hours a pick up so great items to bring home.
