  • Some people love and some people hate. For curious, is very worthwhile. Only on Sundays, is a very traditional fair where the locals take advantage to buy everything they need. Since grain, cleaning products and everyday products such as antiques and to plants and animals. As a tourist, I recommend visiting the fair but who has prejudice, I recommend not to go because it's something that may not please due to the great diversity of people and products. I liked it, I even bought a bracelet that was a bargain.

  • Everyone recommends visiting this fair. I like to visit trade shows (I've been to many, as Are Telmo in Buenos Aires and Bogotá (Las Flea Market Usaquén), but this totally deprived of Montevideo found. Sell mass, soaps, clothes, fruits and vegetables, antiques, clothes and old shoes, a hodge-podge of stuff, but I didn't think it was typical and beautiful crafts to buy. Too bad, because I had a lot of expectations to meet you. The worst, I took my husband and another couple of friends and I was being bullied them later, because of the lack of quality of the fair. It was a waste of time.

  • I read several posts on the internet that the Feria Tristán Narvaja is an unmissable destination for those who are in Montevideo. But what I saw was a clone worsened from 25 March in SP. call this tourist attraction is a joke of bad taste. If you do not have what to do in the Uruguayan capital advise you open a good bottle of wine and enjoy leisurely, is far more profitable than move up to this place. Talk that this ride is awful is even a compliment. If u know any roller fair in Brazil, know that this is what you will find in such Tristán Narvaja.

  • Great tour for a Sunday! Fair is huge and full of things, from food, spices, to live animals, used items and the most diverse forms of arts. Very cool atmosphere!!!
  • Part party part street fair. Very interesting things to see, buy and sample here.
  • Very nice experience to be a part of. Lots of variety.
  • Won't come back. I expected to see antiques and handcrafted things and is mostly resale stuff and fruits and vegetables.
  • Nice place for shopping
