The famous Feria de San Telmo is one of the most notable and popular events that takes place in Buenos Aires. Nestled in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, the San Telmo Fair is bustling with unique artisans and antiques every Sunday from about 10am to 4pm (depending on the season and the weather). Perhaps its greatest qualities, besides the architecturally beautiful neighborhood which it calls home, are its exclusive goods and reliable nature. Never a Sunday will there be without tourists pouring into the cobblestone streets of San Telmo for one of a kind antiques, trinkets, art, tango and delicious food including this great BBQ place that doubles as a car park during the week.
The Choripan Asado (Roast) was a great spot to eat some choripan, drink some beer and listen to some great Rolling Stones music played by a local band.
The market extends approximately 10 block, but they are very long blocks, and stretches from Plaza de Mayo toward the Plaza Dorrego. The architecture of San Telmo is spectacular and a relic all on it's own and a stroll through the market is almost as rewarding architecturally as it is for shopping.
