While Buenos Aires prices can change as frequently as people change their clothes, with some items ridiculously cheap and others bewilderingly expensive, shopping in Buenos Aires is a constant temptation. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a new set of clothes, something interesting to take home with you or simply an experience to remember, Buenos Aires has what it is you are looking for.
For something uniquely Argentine, try stocking up on alfajores at Havanna, wines at Lo de Joaquin Alberdi and tango shoes at Neo Tango. Otherwise, look out for the leather goods Argentina is known for as well as the characteristic mate gourd with a metal bombilla straw. If you get the chance, do ask a local to show you how to prepare some mate so you’ll be sipping like a pro in no time. Or you can get a book on that at the theatre turned bookshop Ateneo Grand Splendid. For a new wardrobe, head to Alto Palermo or Galerias Pacifico. But for a home makeover, Buenos Aires Design will be your kind of heaven. And for more of an experience while you shop, try Buenos Aires’ unique weekend markets like Feria de San Pedro Telmo and cowboy themed Feria de Mataderos.
