Shopping - Shopping Montevideo - Uruguay

Avenida 18 de Julio is Montevideo’s main commercial street. Here you’ll find everything from top fashion boutiques to high street prices and discount outlets. Also take a peek into some of the galerías (malls), like those around Plaza Fabini.

For crafts, avoid the overpriced souvenir shops on Plaza Independencia and head to Mercado de los Artesanos or Mercado de la Abundancia. Stunningly original, hand-crafted woolen clothing can be found at Manos del Uruguay, produced by a women’s cooperative and fairly traded.

Quality camping gear is available at Store Doite (Av. 18 de Julio 1237), while Bookshop (Av. 18 de Julio 1296) has a great selection of English novels, maps and guidebooks.
