Feria Artesanal Plaza Francia

Another wonderful street market, this time in the city's trendy Recoleta neighbourhood, the Feria de Artesanos at Plaza Francia showcases some of the city's best craftsmen in wood, metal, leather, textiles and more. It is the perfect place to pick up great gifts to take back home with you.


Buenos Aires is known to be one of the shopping capitals of South America, and it certainly lives up to its reputation. From the trendy boutiques and luxury shopping of Recoleta and Palermo to the antiques and handicrafts of San Telmo to the exquisite high-quality leather products of Villa Crespo to the ubiquitous bookstores spread out all over the city, every corner of the city seems to have its own specialty when it comes to shopping, and it can keep even the most avid shopper busy for days.
