Merkato - the biggest outdoor market in AfricaMerkato - the biggest outdoor market in Africa

The best cultural pockets of Merkato to experience the City Tour of Addis Ababa are visiting the Spice Market to see the varieties of the spices Ethiopians use to prepare their deliciously hot meals, the False Banana Tree Market (locally known as Enset) whose roots locals use to make bread and porridge, the hand made baskets market, and the second hand items market.

This market is closed on Sundays. As it is the case on most local markets in Ethiopia, bargaining for price is the rule of trading in Merkato.
