October 26th: Day of the Cafe

October 26th is Dia del Cafe Porteño (Porteño Coffee Store). The café is a “porteño” institution par excellence. This is the place where people can feel free at their ease, the perfect spot to dream with friends and find magical solutions to the country’s problems. It is here, better than another scenario, where people think that utopias are possible.

October 26th marks the day of the Cafe, commemorating that in 1894 the historic Café Tortoni opened on Avenida de Mayo 825.

A special celebration will be held at almost every coffe store in Buenos Aires: between 6pm and 8pm drink 4 coffees and pay only 2.

BA Underground Market: explore the flavours

An underground market is a one-day event that provides the opportunity for amateur chefs, artisanal food producers, and creators of amazing homemade food to sell to a hungry and receptive audience of local and expat foodies.

The philosophy of the market is to create a space for people who are un-certified – and therefore don’t have other options to sell their wares. The hope is that the market is a kind of incubator, helping people to raise capital, as well as gain support.

The next BA Underground Market will be on Saturday, 15th September at IMPA la Fábrica.

From hot sauce to cake pops, goat’s cheese to spring rolls, juice and smoothies to hand crafted beer, try new things or retaste old favourites while enjoying live music.

Saturday, 15th September
12 – 5pm
IMPA la Fábrica, 3rd Floor
Querandíes 4290, Almagro
