La Rioja Shopping - Shopping La Rioja - Argentina

Even in cool-weather months, shops and other businesses close up tighter than a drum noon-5 p.m.


La Rioja’s artisans weave good-quality blankets and shawls in earthen colors. They also work in leather, silver and pottery. All these creations may be viewed and bought at the Mercado Artesanal (Tuesday-Friday 9 a.m.-1 p.m., 4-8 p.m.; weekends 9 a.m.-1 p.m. PB Luna 790, Tel: 46-8433). After shopping, stop into the Museo de Arte Sacro, which is in the same building.


La Rioja is famous for its wine, nuts, dried fruits, olives and other products. Paseo del Aljibe has a wide selection of these foods, including escabeches of vizcacha and other wild game (Rivadavia 537, Tel: 1544-6619).
