The Picnic at the Botanical It was born in 2018 and immediately the public adopts it as one of the most popular and special open-air gastronomic fairs in Montevideo —due to its green enclave and its complete proposal for all tastes. Residents from all neighborhoods come to the west of the city over the weekend to celebrate the beginning of spring in the Botanical Garden, a unique space with more than a thousand different species, park ranger service and guarded access. It is estimated that in the 2019 pre-pandemic edition, more than 40,000 people attended throughout the weekend and during the extended hours from noon to night.

Like Pots of the World —our winter fair—, it is a unique instance of cultural integration where foreign cooks and communities are included with their delicious proposals to meet them and expand palates: Indian curry, Mexican tacos, arepas from Venezuela, shawarma from the Middle East, sweets from Greece and much more. The market or pantry of selected products seeks to publicize quality, organic, artisanal and healthy foods such as preserves, fermented foods, nuts, probiotic drinks, etc. In addition, this spring edition has the largest plant fair in the city, promoting exchange between nurserymen and enthusiasts.
