I really like visit this place. a mix of things, fruits stands, antiquarium, a café all this and more in the same place with a nice old structure.
about the place
This market was built in 1897 by Juan Antonio Buschiazzo, the same Italian-born Argentine architect who designed Recoleta Cemetery. It occupies the inside of an entire city block, though you wouldn’t be able to tell just by looking at the modest sidewalk entrances. The wrought-iron interior (note the amazing original ceiling) makes it one of BA’s most atmospheric markets; locals shop here for fresh produce and meat. Peripheral antique stalls offer luggage, wine decanters and other treasures. More stalls are open on weekends.
