All routes begin in the Capital, Addis Ababa. Mercato is the largest open-air market in Africa. It employs tens of thousands and spans a 5 km width. Be warned, you can literally find anything. A guide is essential for safety and comfort. A walk-through is a cultural assault of all the senses. Afterwards, stop for some respite on the fringes with a Latte Macchiato (legacy of Italian invasion) to watch Mercato’s manic mayhem pass by.

Chaotic, crowded, and stifling but one of the largest markets in Africa and a must-see if you are in Addis. Expect interesting but not necessarily enjoyable or attractive.
Apparently, this is the place in town where you are the most at risk of crime.
