In the late 70s, Abel Garcia migrated to the United States from Argentina.  He began working at Catalina's Market (the very first Argentine market in Los Angeles) in the city of Hollywood, California in the early 80s.  A couple of years later, Antonio Ferrari and his family migrated from Argentina and began working there as well.  They met and their friendship grew over the years.


After a few years, both decided to start saving all they could so one day, they could open their own market.  In 1994, their dream became a reality by opening their own market named El Gaucho Meat Market #1 in Redondo Beach, California.


Since then, El Gaucho Meat Market #1 has become one of the top Argentine markets in Los Angeles. Famous for their meat department, they have become well known in the rest of the community as well.  They have been featured in many magazines and newspapers throughout the years.


With their top-notch meat department, well-stocked Latin American groceries and wines, a full service deli-café featuring the best sandwiches in town and their famous empanadas, make El Gaucho Meat Market #1 your local market.
