It's call a flea market so don't expect to find quality items. However, lots of locals so it was a interesting afternoon watching them relax before the Christmas holiday. Not a highlight of our two days in Buenos Aires.

An enclosed flea market selling old used furniture and accessories - antiques and replicas. The nearby shops are also worth a visit. We found a few valuable furniture quite inexpensive. But exporting your furniture home may be difficult so organize that first before making the...More

Pulgas in Spanish means 'flea', so this is the BA flea market. It is far better than the over-priced market that caters mostly to tourists in San Telmo. Located in a revamped building on Dorrego Av. bordering Palermo Hollywood, you can find everything from old...More

We visited the market on a cloud-covered Wednesday afternoon. As you can see in the images below, it wasn’t very crowded and several shops were actually closed (maybe for afternoon siesta?). The huge building holds all kinds of shops featuring a great variety of antiques...More
