Feria de Mataderos, Buenos Aires

Avenida Lisandro de la Torre at Avenida de los Corrales
Buenos Aires
Tel: 54 11 4342 9629's insider take:

The gaucho spirit lives on at this Sunday fair in the outlying barrio of Mataderos, a 30-minute cab ride from downtown B.A. It's the ideal place to soak up some rodeo-style horse antics, chow down on choripan (grilled sausage on a bun, the Argentinean version of a hot dog), and wander the endless craft booths in search of a perfect maté gourd (the traditional vessel for drinking a highly caffeinated local herb tea) or that horse-hoof ashtray you've always dreamed of.

Open Sundays 11 am to 8 pm, March through December.
