Artisan Markets - Activity Info. - Argentina

Many of the clothes and tools now sold as artisan crafts in Argentina were once practical items from the everyday lives of the Argentines. More than a few, like the poncho or boleadoras (cords and weighted balls used to ensnare cattle), came from the gauchos. Although artisan goods were used for a long time in trade, it wasn’t until the age of tourism that these goods were produced for larger-scale market consumption. Today virtually every city and town in Argentina has its own weekend fair or market. The markets have come to include more art objects and accessories along with traditional products. Clothes, jewelry, wool tapestries, wood statues, handmade instruments, leathers, fine art, food, candies, and even artisan beer are some of the things you are likely to encounter.
