“Oasis”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The most remarkable thing about Mercado Agricola is that it is a beautiful, modern, nicely laid out market right in the middle of what appears to be a rough part of town. There are quite a few restaurants ranging from bistro to sandwich to frozen yogurt. You can get live plants, some of the best fresh market food and nicely aged steak. If you're going to grocery shop, it would be nice to have a car or cab but if you're just visiting to eat, a bus would be ok.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

The food stalls are interesting to browse if you are a tourist, however the foodcourt is the best. There are a number of choices and all are good. You can get some great local fast food goodies. Plan for lunch.

“Great Indoor market”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Good place to go for food during the day, and if you want to try your hand at drinking 'mate' like the locals do, there is a material in one of the corners and the friendly staff will show you the ropes. This place is very popular with locals and tourists alike and worth a visit for a few hours.

“well..”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

the building has been restored, and thats a good thing. Now the market is modern and does not really resemble an old style market, but it is a great stop for toilets, a bit to eat and shop.

“Clean, excellent food, variety of shops ”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

The highlight of our visit to Montevideo. Good fruits and veggies, store for celiacs, kids crafts shop, nice library. Loved it! You can spend a good morning or afternoon there. The restaurants aren't all that great but the stalls and shops were so nice. We found it difficult to find good and varied food at normal grocery stores in MVD, and I wish I would've known about this place earlier.
