SAN TELMO MARKETSAN TELMO MARKET

San Telmo Market

This 1897 indoor market constructed from glass and iron on Bolívar and Carlos Calvo Streets houses a mixture of antiques, food and bookstores. Don’t hesitate to haggle in Buenos Aires markets.

Fueguia 1833

Fueguia 1833 is a “scent laboratory” born from a longstanding relationship between France and South America. They have teams in both hemispheres who identify native species in order to create fragrances both in Grasse and Buenos Aires, which reflect the exotic variety and rich history of South America. The beautiful packaging and handwritten labels make it the perfect gift to take back home.

Juan Perez

Pick up some porteño style at Juan Perez, which has the best vintage clothes and accessories for retro bargain hunters.

Kabinett

A self-defined as “imagination, culture, design, architecture, art-fashion, music-show, special, friendly and avant-garde concept store”, this shop will introduce you to the latest in design across the board. Keep updated via their Facebook page, where they post small events with great drinks and music.

Cualquier Verdura

Filling a typical colonial house in San Telmo, this shop offers a variety of quirky homeware pieces. Don’t be shy, you can take pictures in every room of this unique place – including the kitchen, the living room and the patio.

Panorama

This store promotes young and up-and-coming Argentinean designers. With original, bespoke pieces, it’s a regular haunt of the style crowd.

Paul French Gallery

A mecca of homeware and interiors guards the peripheries of a small café. Here you will find everything from vintage furniture to crockery, globes, retro lamps and bicycles. When you’re shopped out, make time for coffee – the house blend is particularly good.

Gabriella Capucci

Aptly located in eclectic Recoleta, Gabriella Capucci stocks colourful flower headpieces, embroidered blouses and gloriously garish jewellery. Leave your minimalist mates behind.

Arandú

A compulsory venture for leather lovers, stocking high-quality goods locally crafted by highly proficient artisans. Pick up anything from gun slips to saddles, country clothing and traditional “boina” gaucho hats.

Calzados Correa

An old-fashioned cobbler in the Almagro district, Calzados Correa offer made-to-measure items delivered within three weeks, in addition to a curated edit of pre-made items. There is a men’s counterpart across the street.

Ateneo Grand Splendid

Arguably one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world, Ateneo Grand Splendid in Barrio Norte is a sight to behold. Source specialist photography and art books on Argentina (check out Editions Lariviere), or grab a copy of prose by Argentine writer Julio Cortazar.
