San Telmo Market Tour

We will meet up at 12 pm in Plaza Domingo square and head towards the iconic San Telmo Market. Since 1897, this building is has been bringing visitors and local residents together.

Inside the historic building, you will discover row upon row of colorful market stalls selling local products. Alongside food, such as meats, fruits, and fresh vegetables, you will also encounter corners dedicated to antiques, books, and vintage cameras.

We will stroll among the market stalls, stopping at one of the most popular in San Telmo Market. This eaterie specializes in the Choripán (not included), a chorizo sausage sandwich which is popular in the Southern Cone area of South America. We will also make our way through the area of restaurants which is traditionally regarded as one of the best places to eat in all of Buenos Aires.

We then leave the market behind and take a walk through the San Telmo neighborhood. Along our route, you will encounter a traditional shop selling the tasty 'dulce de leche', Argentina's most typical confectionary delicacy. Here, you can try a wide variety of different flavors including chocolate, coconut, nuts and even lactose-free. All are accompanied by traditional alfajor biscuits, jams, and liquors.
