San Telmo Feria
Held on Sundays, the San Telmo feria is the city’s biggest and best outdoor market, drawing a reported 12,000 visitors every week, making it the biggest street market in the country, if not the continent. Running all along one of San Telmo’s main streets, Defensa, the market sells everything from leather goods to antiques, and second hand clothes to artisan wares. Make sure to check out the permanent covered market on Bolivar and Carlos Calvo for some unique local fare that can’t be found anywhere else. If you have space and aren’t worried about weight, bring home a traditional glass sifon, commonly used to served soda water in restaurants.
