  • I had high expectations with regard to this market and the disappointment was immense: the place is small and the proposal is very limited. The prices seem very exaggerated. We left without buying anything.

  • A place with wide variety of local crafts. Made with good finish, can be interesting options for gifts. It's worth checking out.

  • The place is spectacular. Several craftsmen with their works in various materials such as wood and ceramics. Is the best place to buy souvenirs of Uruguay. You can buy several different artisans and the payment is centralized in a single box. Is exciting!!!!!!!!!!
