The Feirinha of Puerto Iguazú

La Feirinha is a must-see in Puerto Iguazú, a walk to feel the local market and the flavors of La Docta, a meeting point for locals and visitors.

La Docta
Puerto Iguazú is a border city where nationalities, currencies and languages are mixed in a coming and going of diverse proposals for visitors. The markets and the fairs are the typical places where that amalgam of experiences is much more noticeable. This is the case of La Feirinha in Puerto Iguazú, with more than 70 places that offer typical Argentine products and simple, delicious cuisine.

When we say or listen to "La Docta", it reminds us of the province of Córdoba and its university, one of the first founded in America. Why La Docta in Puerto Iguazú then? This is what is called the position of a Cordovan in La Feirinha, who brought with him the culinary traditions of his native Cordoba and adapted the dishes to a wider audience, not only Argentines, but also many Brazilians and Europeans.

The dishes most claimed by visitors and locals are the chopped, plentiful and simple, with quail eggs and stuffed olives that give them the particular tone of La Docta, and the famous "picanha". This dish is made up of slices of tapa de cuadril accompanied by a dressing of garlic, rice or French fries and farofa , which brings the quota of Brazilian taste to the food. The farofa is very popular in the gastronomy of the neighboring country, a dish whose main ingredient is cassava flour and is used as an accompaniment.

The atmosphere of the fair has the energy of a border city, with a lot of movement, regardless of the day or the time. Those who have already passed by, say that the best time is in the afternoon and when night falls. It is about enjoying all that Puerto Iguazú offers with its folkloric and folkloric mixtures that make it so special.

The fair also exhibits packed products to buy, among which the olive oil of artisanal production, produced in the land of the olive groves in Argentina.
