Feria de Tristán Narvaja

The Sunday rush.

If you're on the lookout for something a bit different for the weekend, then you've come to the right place: this legendary flea market brings Sundays to life in the vibrant Cordón neighbourhood. The market begins in front of the main building of the University of the Republic. Known for its antique and nostalgic character, dating back to the early 20th century, the Feria de Tristán Narvaja market is held every Sunday between Avenida 18 de Julio and La Paz and gives an authentic insight into the psyche and spirit of Montevideo. It is said to be a real paradise for those on the hunt for antiques or bargains of any kind: furniture, crafts, relics, second-hand books, vinyl records, any spare part you could imagine and even top quality fruit and veg to snack on during your visit. It starts at around nine in the morning and often lasts until around four in the afternoon, offering a vibrant insight into the spirit and charm of the capital. How could you resist?
