Feria de Mataderos - Activity Info. Buenos Aires - Argentina

Founded in 1986, the market in the Mataderos neighborhood on the southwestern edge of the city is the city’s largest and has more a county fair-feel than that of a market. Leave museums and books on the side, and live Argentinean culture hands-on at the historic building Mercado Nacional de Hacienda, where the Feria de Mataderos features activities all week.


The fair is composed of three sections: traditional craftsmanship (which you can learn to make with the free workshops offered), the artistic festival, in which you will enjoy presentations of dances that you can join, and Gauchesco skill shows, presented in videos, talks, games and activities. Hundreds of stands sell arts and crafts dominated by local silver and leather work, ubiquitous mate gourds, and other typical implements from the area, and the grounds play host to numerous festivals with folk music and dancing.


Events are always accompanied with regional food and drink and the sprawling rural feel to the market is a nice change from downtown Buenos Aires where the old markets have been converted into shopping malls. Check the webpage for listings and keep an eye peeled for big name folk musicians who can often be seen for free at the market in fun setting.
