San Telmo Market Tours

Each Sunday morning, the historic San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires plays host to the city’s most famous street fair, the San Telmo Market. Locally known as the Feria de San Telmo, the market brings hundreds of vendors to the streets surrounding Plaza Dorrego, most of them dealing in one-of-a-kind antiques. Leather goods, colorful glass soda siphons and antique knives are particularly popular items.

What started as a gathering of 30 or so antique vendors in 1970 when the fair was inaugurated has expanded to nearly 300. Tango dancers, buskers and other entertainers vie for attention of the thousands of shoppers that flood the neighborhood during the weekly event. Hungry shoppers can fuel up on fresh squeezed orange juice and choripan, a sandwich made with spicy chorizo sausage.

Practical Info

Start your market exploration at Plaza Dorrego, where most of the real antiques are located, before taking a stroll down Defensa Street.
