This is in the older part of Buenos Aires and it is filled with shops, bars and cafes that could soak up a day of people wathching

This is not your typical market where everything is almost the same from one stall to the next, this a true craft Market where you'll find just about anything, and it's seems endless! From crafts to food to music... If you can spare a Sunday... Don't miss out on this!

Interesting, lively, colorful neighborhood, great for a day-stroll. You can buy souvenirs and presents, lots of leather and silver products at a very good price, you can eat or have a coffee/drink and then continue strolling.

Not much there. Went the Sunday between Xmas and New Year so maybe that had something to do with it. Park was full, but not much else. The stores nearby were interesting. Lots of cafes if you need refreshment. Not worth arranging your stay in order to go to the fair. Surroundings seemed very secure. Vendors were nice and polite. The fair near Recoleta cemetary was where to go for hand crafted items.

We went on a couple of different days. On Sundays they have a HUGE market up and down the street. When I say huge, I mean huge!!!! You can get souvenirs and local items for sale. We also stopped in at an old church to look around. There are also musicians playing on the streets and tango dancers.

On a non-market day it's nice to sit in the plaza and enjoy a cafe con leche or other drink. There are lots of people out enjoying the area. Tango dancers are also there to watch on the platform. You can also walk down the streets and see the stores without the market setup in the way. We got some souvenirs (mate cups) here.

Can walk to the San Telmo Market building from here as well.
