The area
Neighborhood: Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.

This review will be much the same as the San Telmo market, as you will see many of the same vendors. The main difference here is that you can see what's happening at the awesome Recoleta Cultural Centre.
Man, I couldn't believe the variety and quality of the offerings. At least half of the vendors were selling actual hand made artworks and crafts- colourful and unique, many vendors actually making stuff right at their stalls. This is NOT a place for crappy mass produced 'made in China' souvenirs. I only wish I had more room in my luggage so I could support these artisans. The prices are very fair considering much of what's here is original and hand made. In addition, nobody was charging me 'gringo prices', so please refrain from haggling- you'll only ruin it for the people who appreciate it here. There must be hundreds of booths, so take your time. There will be food vendors and maybe live entertainment as well. I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday in BA.

This place is the best for souvenirs. They have a lot of stalls selling the same things, so go around once before buying to see where the best price can be found. It's cheap, it's in a beautiful park right by the magnificent Recoleta cemetery, and it's now conveniently close to the Facultad de Derecho Línea H subte stop. Things here are definitely touristy and quirky, as most are made by hand, but what's wrong with that? If you're a tourist, get some touristy things with "Buenos Aires" stamped all over it.

This flee market’s in Recolecta every Saturday. I went here after visiting the Bellas Artes Museum to avoid the heat. There were so many things on sale, though I thought the one I went to in Cordoba have more creative handcraft products?

There are many Ferias in Buenos Aires - this is one of my favourite. There is a wide range on offer. I like the silver jewellery, the Art works and leather and non-leather bags. You can get things for yourself or for gifts. There are good restaurants nearby and the Cemetaria is near if you wanted to combine that or one of the museums. Good location and good feria.

handcrafted and authentic that's what it's all about. You will be even able to use a credit card when paying, surely you'll find something you like. Earrings, bags, carpets, dolls, and much more.

We spent a Saturday at this open air market. There are very nice vendors, but this is tourist trade stuff. It’s worth an hour to wander around, not much more.

I stumbled upon the Féria de Artesanos de Plaza Francia in route to the National Museum of Art on a Saturday. It’s not anywhere near as large as the San Telmo Féria, but there were probably 150+ vendors. Lots of leather goods, jewelry and clothing. Nice knitwear for babies, children and women. Several booths with attractive lightweight casual women’s clothing. Some nice handcrafted art - wood, glass, ceramics; a fair amount of cheap junk as well. I spoke with several of the vendors and none were willing to negotiate prices. The pricing did seem higher than at San Telmo. I left with a couple of treasures so it was well worth my time. If you only have time for one and you’re in town on a Sunday, go to San Telmo. Lots of the same or similar merchandise, but I did see some things here that I didn’t see at San Telmo, and vice versa.

few handmade and scarce original craftsmanship. prices are quite commercial and the whole experience is just a cheap treat. only visit this attraction if you are stranded in town and have never seen any of the sort.

once you have seen one, you have seen them all.

You´ll find different types of crafmans, from painters to woodworkers. There are coffeshops, restorants and the famous argentine barbacue. There is the classy cementery of recoleta where the richiest argentinian are burried. There are also parks and an incredible Buenos Aires architecture.

I'm not sure if it's because it is winter and the weather today was fairly average, or if this is a common thing, but when we went around midday more than half the available stalls at the market weren't even set up. Of those that were there a lot were selling the same kind of average wares. There were a few gems though - I particularly liked one stall selling handmade leather dog collars and leads. Overall though, it may be better to visit this market in warmer months.
