Tristan Narvaja, the largest uruguayan flea market

<<previous next>>
Uruguay tristan narvaja, largest flea market in uruguay Uruguay tristan narvaja, largest flea market in uruguayEvery sunday morning takes place the largest flea market in Uruguay, named after the street where it's located.La feria de tristan narvaja is the kinda place where you can find everything, ranging from tarantula like spiders, parrots, old comic magazines, groceries, books, arts & crafts, old vinyl records, old tv and radio sets, antiques, to the latest pirate piece of software. I guess, "eclectic" is the most suitable word for the place.

Uruguay tristan narvaja, largest flea market in uruguayIt's the land of the collectionist and the pick-pocketer, a place where you can find the neighbor buying the week's stock of groceries, the ocassional madman shouting, the street beggar begging, and the reseller looking for some undervalued item. A human zoo of sorts, a uruguayan gallery of sights, sounds and scents. It's in some way the negative of a shopping center.

Uruguay tristan narvaja, largest flea market in uruguayThe market is placed all along the tristan narvaja street, which is about one kilometer, and extends to every crossing and paralell street. While the backbone of the market takes place in tristan narvaja st, it is in the periphery where it is more likely to find hidden "treasures", laid on blankets on the street. It is also in the periphery where is less secure, and is a more fertile ground for street scams.

Uruguay tristan narvaja, largest flea market in uruguayThere is even one uruguayan urban myth that talks about one "torres garcia", a painting from one of the most famous uruguayan paintors was actually found and bought here for nothing. There is also another myth about an stradivarius being found here, but the latter I find harder to believe.

I've found this article about tristan narvaja market. I copy& translate one excerpt of market conversation:

(- ¿Cuánto sale?
- Cinco pesos
- ¿Cinco pesos vale esta porquería?
- Ahora vale diez y la única porquería que yo veo es a Usted...)

- How much is this?
- Five pesos
- Five pesos for this crap?
- Now it's ten, and the only crap I see is you
