Expatriates Explore Gourmet Treasures At Buenos Aires Underground Market

By , March 30th, 2013 | Articles, Entertainment, Hispanic, Media | 0 Comments

On March 23, The Argentine Independent held its fourth quarterly BA Underground Market at the IMPA La Fabrica Ciudad Cultural located in the Almagro Zona of Buenos Aires. The English-language online newspaper that is written from an Argentine and Latin America viewpoint borrowed the idea from Forage, the recently closed San Francisco original underground market.

Climbing a few flights of stairs past floors of industrial machinery of this famous manufacturing warehouse, small and beginning vendors alike are exposed to the Indy’s community of expatriates and other readers looking for a few gourmet bites like Spanish and English blogger Julieta Gonzalez Blanco’s sinful cookies, Boudicca Cerveza Aresanal ales and organic twists on Argentine classic empanadas by Comer Natural.

While satisfying their palate, they can pick up a couple of items for around the house. Maybe an assortment of flavored olive oils, vinegars and chocolate sauces by La Cocina Del Vino or the first English translation of Horacio Quiroga’s classic storybook “Cuentos de la Selva,” or “Jungle Tales,” funded by a Kickstarter.com campaign.

Live music is provided at each event. March’s crowd was blessed with the chorale chords of Gospel In The Street.

There is one item that all of whom in attendance acquire from the five-hour expat oasis in the porteño city. Each receives a little slice of home comfort from time well spent amongst others in their shoes residing in the Paris of the South.
