San Telmo market

Historic indoor market offering everything from antiques to great coffee.

This large indoor market has stalls offering everything from antiques to fresh fruit and spices.

With a typically Italian facade and large interior spaces, the Mercado de San Telmo opened in 1897 to cater to the needs of the new wave of immigrants arriving from Europe. The stalls have since been updated but the internal structure of the market remains the same, with metal columns and beams, so stepping inside is still like stepping back in time. The building was declared a national historic monument in the year 2000.

There are stalls selling food, antiques, crafts, records, and toys, making for an eclectic mix. The Coffee Town stall is known for having some of the best coffee in the city.

The market is open every day, but some stalls only open at the weekends.
