An excellent option: the artisans’ fair organized at “France square”, but the right
name is “Alvear square”. You will be amazed by unique pieces made by local
artisans, but you can complete your walk visiting Recoleta Cemetery, one of the
most important ones in the world. You can also visit the Recoleta Cultural
Centre to admire the exhibitions. To close de afternoon, a coffee at La Biela,
one of the most traditional coffee shops in Buenos Aires.
Open Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays
Serrano Square Artisans’ Fair
In the heart of Palermo, there is a fair at Cortázar square, usually known as
Serrano square, which became an important area these days: you will find
decoration items, handmade clothes, toys and a lot more. The square is
surrounded by bars offering craft beer and other drinks. If you were thinking to
stay there just for a couple of hours, perhaps you will decide to stay much more
than that. The walls around the area turned into canvases for street artists. A
Open Saturdays and Sundays
Located just where Palermo neighbourhood finishes and Colegiales begins, the
Flea Market is quite different to the other ones already mentioned. Walking
around the different halls is like going back in time. Dishware, bookcases,
mirrors, trunks and other unique items are waiting there to be discovered by
someone who appreciates them. Even more, the streets around the market
became a meeting point to enjoy a beer or a coffee as the sun sets.
Open every day
Fairs and markets in Buenos Aires are a good image of Argentinian people:
creative, smiling and always willing to meet someone who decided to visit us.
We expect you to come!
