OMG! Yesterday easily classifies as the best day I’ve had since I’ve been here in South America. We went to the Feria de Recoleta or Outdoor Market of Recoleta located in Plaza Francia. I don’t think I have a word that can best describe the smorgasbord of goodies that awaited us in each tent. I can’t even say for sure just how many tents there were, but it was SO exciting!
This outdoor market offers everything…clothes, shoes, handbags, jewelry, toys, furniture, rugs…and MORE! And get this….it’s ALL handmade! It felt like we were shopping in the park. There’s food and games for the kids, and there’s even live music! The band was playing Reggae music…Amazing!
If you’re ever in Buenos Aires, this is definitely the place to be. Just remember that you have to make it out there on Sundays or holidays, as those are the only accessible days. Tents are open from 9am to 6pm. The prices are so unbelievably reasonable, I ended up asking one owner if I could just buy the entire table of brass bracelets that cost $15 pesos a piece! Do you know how much that is in US Dollars?! Okay, well let me help you….it’s like $4 dollars. And this is what they look like:
By going to just this one outside market I was able to buy all of the souvenirs and trinkets I need for my family and friends back home. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take pictures of the insides of the tents. The artisans all have signs posted in their tents stating that pictures are not allowed. I was able to get pictures of the outsides of the tents though. Here they go:
We stayed out there so long that people were packing up their tents to leave. I was sad to see them go. LOL! I’m still on the hunt for some vintage clothing so hopefully we can luck up on something soon. You know I’ll let you guys know 🙂 Until next time!
