We did not visit the fair in San telmo so I cannot compare, but I found beautiful design and very good prices for jewelry at one stand (the others had more banal designs, this gentleman's stand was near the top of the hill towards the...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....More
We visited in 2010 and again in September 2017, and felt that the merchandise was a bit more "touristy/kitchy" than during our first visit. There were a lot of booths (a plus) but not all were "truly artisan crafted."
Still had a great time!
An outdoor place where you can find a little of everything, from jewerly to paintings to clothing and food.
Open over the weekend, which makes it more accesible than San Telmo (only Sundays).
Close to many restaurants, the Recoleta's Cemetary and other attractions like the...More
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...More
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.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking through this fair. It's much larger then we anticipated, but no where near the size or craziness of the San Telmo fair. I would recommend going to both if possible. We bought most of our souvenirs at this fair. It's much...More
This square turns into a well organized arts and crafts market built by the city administration, keeping it clean, safe and very well organized !
The stalls have a huge variety of hand made goods of good quality and taste for resanable prices ;))
My friend and I had the best time exploring this quirky craft market. There were leather goods, swords, jewelry, paintings, clothing, and lots of other things, but our favorite was the stand that had little metal figurines. There was a chef with a frying pan,...More
I stumbled upon this feria by chance, as I was making my way to the Recoleta cemetery. I ended up spending far too much time looking through the stands, and talking to people, tand I do not regret it.
The feria is in a beautiful...More
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.
