Shopping in Rosario, Argentina: Handcrafts, Souvenirs & Malls
Rosario has many high end department stores along with some great craft fairs. Most shops close around dusk, so you'll have all day to enjoy browsing around town. There are several pedestrian streets, like Calle Cordova, which are full of shops selling leather and wood products, where you can find souvenirs for everyone, all at very affordable prices. If you are looking for more mainstream brands and shops, then there are plenty of good malls in the city. If you are a little short of time, then we recommend taking one of the many shopping tours of Rosario.
Mercado de Pulgas del Bajo
Established in 1982, Mercado de Pulgas del Bajo, the city's flea market, is one of the oldest fairs in Rosario. Each week, on Saturdays and Sundays, more than 60 craftsmen arrive to put their up stands and offer their wonderful wares. This market helps to promote the indigenous culture of Argentina and provides a good source of income for the artisans. You can find handicrafts made of ceramic, leather, metal, textiles, wood, glass and a whole lot more.
Mercado Retro La Huella
Only open on Sundays, this market is a paradise for anyone who has an interest in antiques. One of the requirements is that all the items sold here are at least 25 years old. It takes place outdoors and draws hundreds of people searching for curiosities from the past. You can find anything from old European tableware to large typewriters and LP records. This market is considered as the largest antiques fair in the country and definitely well worth visiting.
Shopping del Siglo
This mall is a huge multi-story building housing about 100 retail stores, movie theaters, ATM machines and a large food court. Its location has been an integral to its development, since it is constructed between the busy streets of Cordoba, La Rioja and Pte Roca.

Alto Rosario Shopping
Alto Rosario Shopping is relatively new compared to the other popular shopping malls in Rosario, however, its unique design has been one of the key factors to its success.
