Mercado de la Abundancia

Inspired by the French capital.

Known as one of the most curious corners of the Uruguayan capital, this heritage building dates back to 1859 and was declared a National Historic Monument in the seventies. Home to one of the very first markets in the city, the work of engineer Leopoldo Pelutfo who drew inspiration from the Parisian market Les Halles, it was seen as big step forwards for the city. The main entrance, on the mythical San José street, has a pretty iron gateway topped by a dome with superimposed layers designed to mimic fish scales. The building, which has enjoyed a new lease of life since 1996, has retained the majesty of its original design while adapting to new times and tastes. On offer, you'll find gourmet food, a culinary space dedicated to popular food and craft stalls selling a range of handmade reed, wicker, wooden or metal items.
