Port of Fruits Tigre
Port of Fruits Tigre, details about one of the largest markets that Buenos Aires has, just a few kilometers from the city center.
It is a small pier, on the banks of the Luján River, in the province of Buenos Aires, precisely in the town of Tigre.
Here, we have told you about what to do in Tigre, but we want you to know a little more about Port of Fruits, one of the main attractions in this area.
Its name is due to the fact that, until the middle of the 20th century, this place was where the landing of the fruit production was carried out to later be marketed in the city.
Over time, the stalls multiplied, as well as the offer of more varied products, which, precisely, did not include vegetables and fruits, but rather a sale of accessories of all styles to decorate the home.
Likewise, the number of people who came to this place grew, since the plan consisted of spending a day outdoors, hand in hand with a huge range of products in one place and at a lower cost.
Currently, you will find countless stalls, one next to the other, added to a large fair of craftsmen and shops with items for the house, as well as beautiful furniture.
You will see many works made in wicker, reed, wood, steel and pine, a huge variety of ornaments for interior decoration and everything you can imagine!
But not everything is about household items and antiques, it also has a huge range of gastronomy and regional products. Not only will you delight your eyes with the landscape, nor will you want to buy everything, but your palate will also be happy! With options for all tastes, you can enjoy a delicious meal and a variety of drinks, with the river in the background.
Without hesitation, it is a special place to spend a whole day enjoying the outdoors, with the river as a setting, walking around here is an excellent option! A day of nature and relaxation, eating delicious things and enjoying a quieter place than the well-known hustle and bustle of the city.
It is a place that works from 1938 to the present, where thousands of people choose to come here daily, since it is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays it opens from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. It doesn’t matter what day you come, or if it rains, since they open the same! It is likely that, if you come on a weekday, not all the stalls are open, since many are only open on the weekend.
