Mercado Central, Mendoza

3.4
#4 of 21 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.

  • Like any market, this also represents the local culture. Local and regional food stalls and even imported. It is the famous Argentine alfajor milk candies of various local brands, wines, olive oils, cheeses, Salamis, in addition to fruits, grains and meat.

  • I love central market because could find affordable quality foods. There's a candy store that has many options of alfajor with a very good price. Small, organized and clean.

  • The market is small, but very nice. Worth a visit in the heart of the "micro Center" of the town, very frequented by residents of the city both for shopping and for leisure. In addition to the stalls of fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, spices and dried fruit, has a few simple restaurants to eating an empanada, or mass, or parrilla, ... whatever you want.

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.
