Caminos y Sabores is an annual fair where small producers from all over Argentina showcase and sell their produces.
Most booths sell mate, beer, oil, wine, dulce de leche, cured meats, jams and marmalades, cheeses, honey. Some sell spices, algaes from Patagonia, cured fish, artcrafts, Andean food such as arrope de tuna (marmalade made with Indian fig), quesillo (a strip of bland, thready cheese from the North), salt, soaps, etc.
We buy oil for all year (a lot cheaper than supermarkets), tons of mate (about one third the normal price), marmalades, spices and odd food you rarely come across.
There is also a small part of the exhibition selling non-food goods, such as leather products, woolen ones, etc.
Tickets are a staggering $200 per person this year, but it is a strategy to avoid people coming just to take advantage fo the free samples and not buying. Still, they allow 2x1 after 8PM and with some cards (full list of discounts here).
