Mercado de las Pulgas

An extensive collection of over thirty stands have turned this neighborhood warehouse into a lively flea market. Its dusty aisles are lined with costume jewelry, custom-made furniture, antique light fixtures, and original artwork. Be sure to visit to the antique stand run by Tony, one of the most established and charismatic vendors at the Mercado de las Pulgas. His antiques and, more notably, his custom-made wacky hats (decorated with all kinds of nostalgic bric-a-brac) have been attracting publicity for the past many years. The market’s wide variety of antique goods and its winding layout make this an excellent, if off-beat, way to spend an afternoon.

Avenida Avellaneda

Heavy-duty shoppers who are looking for cheap deals on clothing, head outside the tourist track to Avellaneda Street, where you'll find over 1600 clothing stores, all within a 50-block radius. Buy clothes either por mayor (wholesale bulk quantities) or por menor (regular retail). Look for one of these two words to be largely displayed in the store window to let buyers know the quantity allotment. Two important tips: since it is such a popular destination for locals, be sure to go early to avoid long lines. Also, it's important to keep your belongings zipped and secure, large crowds in a confined space could result in pickpocket heaven.

San Telmo

A Bohemian neighborhood that dances to the tunes of tango, abuzz with street markets that provide a stark contrast to its tranquil Colonial origins, San Telmo defines flamboyance, culture and movement. While brick makers and dockworkers occupied this zone in the 17th Century, it has always been known for the markets that have been characterizing the cobblestone streets since its origins. Till date, tourists throng to the Sunday antiques' market that lights up the otherwise peaceful Plaza Dorrego, which is also one of the oldest plazas of Buenos Aires. A plethora of opulent art galleries has attracted the creme de la creme of the urban crowd, which upped the ante of this remarkable traditional area. The traditional Colonial Buildings, festooned with bougainvillea, have now been turned into swanky cafes and lofts, while still maintaining the old world charm. The quintessence of the vibrant culture of Buenos Aires comes alive with the street performers who swirl and twirl their feet to tango, making every day a grand carnival. Restaurant theaters that host tango shows on a regular basis have become one of the most sought after tourist attractions.
