“It's a place for locals only”

Feria de Tristan Narvaja
Ranked #52 of 255 things to do in Montevideo
Attraction details
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Trinstan Narvaja is a place where the locals sell everything, from fruits, clothes and pupies to broken toys and car parts. Its hard to find something interesting or hand made. Definetly it doesn't worth the time.

Every Sunday this flea market goes on for blocks as far as the eye can see. It's huge. Just about anything can be purchased from fresh produce to local crafts & lots of junk. Very disturbing to see sickly puppies & kittens not to mention dozens of frightened parrots jamed into a tiny cage. No PETA here. On the bright side; this is antique row. Many terrific shops with very nice & helpful merchants.

The antiques are not antiques, just old junk. The cheese is amazing, the produce good. There are lots of stand with animal sales, mascots. That was crazy. Cheap stuff. Nothing soectacular, but on a nice day, it makes for a good walk.

This is a anything and everything flea market. Most of the stuff is really cheap junk but then other things are fine. Fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese....all good. Some electronics and electronic gadgets/plugs are good. Point is, if you need something and can't find it in a store here it might be at this market and likely at a lower price than in a store. But it's hit and miss if you'll find what you're looking for. Nice place for a tourist to see....ONCE. Just to say you did it. Other than that, not so much.

I've been to Feria de Tristan Navaja on May, 3rd, 2009. I spared the sunday morning to visit that Feria, since I like to stroll on swap meets and antique fairs. Well, I saw a lot of old stuff, but not antiques or pitoresque things, making this visit a little disappointing, since I had created a great expectation.
The Feria is huge, distributed among several streets besides the own Tristan Navaja. In my opinion, if you have plenty of time, you may spare some hours to walk thru those streets; otherwise, go elesewhere.
Oh, should you be eager to buy Uruguayan products, mainly clothes, it´s better going to Parque Rodó, where a fair also runs on sundays.
