Organic Find

Tren de la Costa

Pastries

Meat and Cheese

Veggies

Organic is not seen everywhere, it might be of inconvenience, but definitely possible to find. I like this helpful post by GoodmorningBA listing organic fairs, delivery options and shops all around town- the inspiration for me to check out San Fernando Organic Market.

This market is right at the San Fernando station on the Tren de La Costa line: easy and such a comfortable scenic train ride. This market opens at 10am~5pm; by 12 the station trickled with people, filling in their bags with fresh goods. One side of the station sells baked goods, honey and jam, cheese, cold cuts, eggs and chicken; the other side has veggies, herbs, plants and eco-friendly bags. My heart skips a beat to see fresh beautiful veggies exist in Buenos Aires, and affordable: 4 pesos ($1) for an abundant bunch of spinach. Even though the baked goods still have some years to catch on to the North American’s drooling standards, I’ll definitely come back for their baby carrots, herbs, and organic eggs.
