San Telmo Festival

A vast array of gadgets and knick-knacks.

Prepare to see almost anything you could imagine in this vibrant market. San Telmo, located in the neighbourhood of the same name, on Dorrego Square, boasts over two hundred stalls, visited by collectors and people looking for treasures every Sunday. This enormous exchange began in 1970, when a group of merchants acquired a free stall to sell their peculiar, valuable and old merchandise. Today, there is a waiting list for those who wish to occupy one of these stalls, whose names are drawn every week. Once their names are drawn, they are not allowed to pass the responsibility on to anyone else. Livened up with street performances, San Telmo is the place to find all kinds of objects, including rare pieces. Vinyls, coins, jewellery, books, buttons, leather goods…the list goes on. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, it probably doesn’t exist.
