Buenos Aires shopping can be found in many different neighborhoods that are filled with small boutiques, antique stores and art galleries. Shopping in Buenos Aires is cheaper than shopping in many European cities, and for tourists arriving from Europe or the US, the currency exchange rate makes Buenos Aires even more affordable. Things to buy include quality leather jackets, boots, ponchos, and antiques.

Shopping in Recoleta

Recoleta is the most upscale area in Buenos Aires. Shops in this part of town belong to some of the most expensive retailers, so if you are looking for luxury boutiques, Recoleta is the neighborhood to head to. Many shops sell imports from Europe, including shoes and clothes. The quality in Recoleta is high, but so are the prices.

Every weekend, the Recoleta Plaza Francia hosts a market that is an excellent place to look for handicrafts and arts. Local artists gather here for the market, and there are street performances to entertain the visitors.

Patio Bullricht has several classy shops that offer a wide range of products that are very pretty to look at. It features mainly interior design products, and is one of the upscale shopping malls in the area.

San Telmo Market

The San Telmo neighborhood is the best place in Buenos Aires to shop for antiques. The area features a flea market every weekend as well as an antique market on Paza Dorrego. The flea market is also a fun way to spend a day browsing at the stalls, stopping in a café, and watching the busy market scene. The streets around the San Telmo market are home to several antique shops, and very good deals can be made here.

El Centro and Palermo

El Centro’s highlights include the Avenue Florida, the Avenue Santa Fe, and the Galerias Pacifico. The Avenue Florida is possibly the most famous shopping road in the whole city. You can shop for clothes, leather, gifts, and books, and there are several pretty cafes and restaurants. The Galerias Pacifico is a shopping mall on several floors, and the shops along the Avenue Santa Fe sell clothes, gifts and other items.

The largest shopping mall in Buenos Aires, however, is the Alto Palermo Shopping Mall in Palermo. With literally hundreds of stores as well as cafes and restaurants, this mall attracts large crowds of shoppers every day. Palermo also has a variety of smaller shops and boutiques for clothes, gifts and arts.

====================================================

You could spend a few hours shopping and people watching along Florida Avenue a pedestrian shopping street lined with small shops and cafes just off the Plaza de Mayo.

There are also many shopping malls, including Abasto Shopping, Palermo Shopping, Galerias Pacifico, Patio Bullrich, Recoleta Galleries.

Once is an area where you go get cheaper goods. Although they may not be of the best quality, and this area is not the safest (although not scaringly dangerous), you can get some good bargains here. There is everything you could want from casual to party clothes shoes and odds and ends.

Following the devaluation of the peso, shopping in Argentina is great for tourists who can get a lot for the money. Some of the best shops in Buenos Aires may seem expensive to the locals but are a haven for tourists who can come with up to double thier money.
