Mercado Central, Mendoza

3.4
#4 of 22 in Shopping in Mendoza
Stock up on groceries at Mercado Central, a vibrant, colorful city center market with oodles of premium meat, fish, and green produce under one roof. A wide variety of pork, chicken, fish, and beef make up a significant portion of the stalls, and nothing goes to waste: customers can choose anything from entrails and intestines to the more conventional cuts. If, however, the sight of whole gutted animals hanging upside down might upset you, steer clear. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Mendoza trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

    The central market is an interesting proposal to meet the fresh products, buy cheeses, sausages, meats, grains, oils, chocolates and coffee. Reminded me of the central market of São Paulo but a smaller proportion. The appearance outside no invites but inside and everything very clean and organized.

    Local date of 1883; interesting to see the variety of food products sold, and so some of the local tradition. Bad access to bathroom and few dining options.

    Excellent place to buy gifts, found excellent quality chocolate and eat cheap. The only problem was the very small size.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
