“Feria Plaza Francia - great arts and crafts”
Review of Plaza Francia

Plaza Francia
Ranked #52 of 787 things to do in Buenos Aires
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2013

If you are looking for good quality arts and crafts, whether for yourself or others, this is the place to go. The little tent/booths go on forever, on all the sidewalks running through and around the Plaza Francia. I didn't even get to all of them, and I was there for at least an hour. I would definitely allow two hours if you're serious about finding some good stuff. (Bring a tote bag!) I had to remain focused or I would have stopped at many more booths. I found the quality to be generally quite high, certainly more uniformly than at the Feria San Telmo (though I love that fair in a different way). I don't recall seeing any tourist kitsch. And the prices are quite reasonable. The vendors are friendly and helpful, there's food for sale (though you'll have to walk around and find a bench or sit on the ground), and everyone seems to be in a good mood. It's a nice way to spend some outdoor time, and there's plenty of lawn to relax on if you want to rest in the sun.

Pick a sunny day, light clothes and go walk. A safe and cosy family place. A very peculiar street market gives you that little different thing. Nevertheless, you'll be able to find ice-cream shops and nice cafes nearby. Overall, a very nice walk. Don't miss the cemetery and the Museum of art!

This Plaza, right across Recoleta Cemetary, hosts a daily Feria, with a lot of handicraft and jewelry for sale.

You will also find many street musicians and all kinds of public gatherings.

Still, it is a great place to sit down and enjoy the day with your friends or with a book.

Plaza Francia is the location of the lovely Recoleta feria. Spend the day there with your family or a group of friends. There is plenty to do and see. There are comedies that set up in the middle of the plaza who tell jokes and put on little puppet shows. Take a stroll through the Recoleta cemetery if you have a chance as well!

We visited on Saturday and enjoyed browsing the various stalls. Each stall had something different - there was very little repetition among the vendors. Although small, this is one of the higher quality markets we encountered on our travels. The setting next to the beautiful Recoleta Cemetery is quite nice.
