The Feria de Mataderos is not in the city center of Argentina but is in the barrio of Mataderos on the city’s edge. Maintaining its roots as the largest trade fair in the city, it has a wide selection of wines, cheeses, crafts, sweets, and meats that come from across Argentina. The fair runs from 11 to 8 and entrance is free, as are the wonderful shows that take place on the bandstand.
