Merkato, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Mercato is the biggest outdoor market not only in Addis Ababa or Ethiopia but in the whole of Africa. The must-see parts of Merkato include the Spice Market, the hand made baskets market, and second-hand items market. It is closed on Sundays

Mercato is especially interesting for the fact that it is a museum of locals. You can meet different people who come from the more than 90 tribes of Ethiopia and communicate in the Amharic language. The order of trading here is bargaining.
