Buenos Aires, Argentina: Enjoy Plaza Dorrego Flea Market PDF Print E-mail

Every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the amazing displays at Plaza Dorrego in the barrio of San Telmo greet visitors. Along with the usual flea market and fresh food offerings, it’s the prime open-air antique market in the Argentinian capital.

In its first years of the 1970s, wealthy families sold their gold and silver items during tough economic times. The attractive prices brought buyers from the auction houses of Europe and North America. In addition to the more valuable items for sale, today there are street food vending carts, vegetable stalls, book sellers, smartphone kiosks, beer stands and much more.

Considering it’s happening in musical Buenos Aires, visitors can also enjoy the famed tango dancers, musicians, singers and other Argentinian entertainment at the market. For more info, go to www.afar.com/places/plaza-dorrego-flea-market-buenos-aires
