Carriage Market Buenos Aires, a modern gastronomic pole that will allow you to enjoy the Retiro neighborhood even more.
The space where it was built has a lot of history, in addition to being a new gastronomic offer, with fresh food and a huge variety for any taste!
Its building dates back to 1900, created to be the garage for the presidential carriages, hence its name “Carriage Market”. In this place, the horses and carriages of the Presidency of the Nation used to rest. Later, it became a parking lot for official cars, when the carriage was no longer used as a means of transportation.
It was declared a Historical Heritage, so its expansion and restoration had the obligation to maintain some original sectors and parts. Regarding its reform, it was oriented to the return of the original state of its façade, without affecting its heritage value. With bronze doors, a central dome, several stained glass windows and tiled walls, this site maintains the essence of those spaces of the time intact. You can see its majolica tiles in the entrance hall, which are also original, like the bronzes and bricks.
It has 4200mts in total, with a terrace that has vertical and ornamental gardens, two floors and 43 stores with fresh merchandise that varies from meats, vegetables, national and imported foods, cheeses and different restaurant specialties.
On the ground floor is the shopping mall, with varieties of organic, fresh and pantry products. In addition, you will find packaged products. Some of these products come from abroad and many others are from different regions of Argentina.
