Dorrego Flea Market, gone for ever.....
Topic: Personal Shopper Tour
Swirls of antique stained glass, blazes of brass, forests of carved wood and waterfalls of crystal combine to make up the city's most fabulously festive interior.”
Mimi Sheraton quotes


O good old man, how well in thee appears The constant service of the antique world, When service sweat for duty, not for meed! Thou art not for the fashion of these times, When none will sweat but for promotion”
William Shakespeare quotes




The takeover and resistance of the Dorrego Flea Market, sad news for all of us....

The story began back in the early days of 2006 when the municipal government of Buenos Aires decided to shut down the famous trade-mark flea Market temporarily. Arguing that after the Cromagnon tragedy-two years ago when during a rock n’ roll show a disco brunt on fire and 294 people were killed- all city security measures had to be tighter and places should stand by the necessary security regulations.

A valid idea but it was a disguise to maybe a permanent lock out….. So, the government who was asking all the art & antique dealers and salesmen from the flea market to relocate elsewhere and set their business in new places until the rehab work was done did not agree to sign a legal document stating that all those working in the market would be allowed back to their “own shop spot” once the work was done.

From February until last Friday, the local owners and workers had decided not to leave the market until favorable resolution…There was no such thing, the Justice authorized the eviction by force. Indeed a clear proof of the tight situation between the parties.

Located at the intersection of Alvarez Thomas and Dorrego, this market –whose origins can be traced over 2 decades ago- has been not only an area trademark but also a treasure beholder. Together with the inside salesmen, a great number of locals and foreigners found in this particular market a wide variety of quality antiques, collectibles and vintage stuff that was of great cultural and symbolical value.

Though it’s crucial that the market is set back in order within security, hygiene and environmental matters, the way the local authorities have proceed let many of us believe that there an intention of structural reorganization that would harm the original value of the place. Even more, a group of shop-owners have slipped the idea of the government wanting to turn the market into a shopping-mall like spot. This would not only leave the city without one great flea market but would also deprive a great deal of workers from their income provider. Even worst is the fact that violence has set the tone in this situation.

Nonetheless, it seems that the final word has not yet been said, and we hope in our hearts that the government stands for its word in maintaining the originality and uniqueness of the Dorrego Market.
