Visit to an outdoor Market
We continue walking to an outdoor market, a colorful food market where locals gathers for fresh priduce. For a fantastic source of insider’s information, Teresita will go over the names of the different fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, meat cuts, and various South American spices throughout the fair. Peak into the Argentine culture and watch what goes on at this very traditional market. Stands go for several blocks and the area is closed to traffic.
The whole scenery is perfect for those who appreciate food and culture. You will learn about the different colorful fruits, vegetables, and see a variety of stands displaying all kind of spices and herbs. This market is a true reflection of the Argentine culture.
*Please note the food market is not a fancy market, it is still unspoiled by the ravages of mass tourism as opposed to food markets you can find in downtown Buenos Aires. It is a place where vendors still sell produce drown in the are. You won’t find rows of stands selling French cheese or Italian olive oil. Instead, you will experience a real Argentinean town market.
