Mercado Central, Mendoza

3.4
#4 of 21 in Shopping in Mendoza
Farmers Market Food & Drink
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. Plan your visit to Mercado Central and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mendoza tourist route planner.

  • We went today Saturday at 2 in the afternoon, and as always, everything closed. We do not think that that schedule for NAP which have here, also applied for the market, something which the Chileans are not used. However, the restaurants were open, they were 4 or 5 with very little variety of food and the prices quite high considering the place, so we didn't eat there. Perhaps again at a later time, but earlier, clearly.

  • Of course, it's a market! But a clean place, with great diversity of fruits, meats, sweets and chocolates, in addition to mtos cool places to eat. Has a good wine shop downtown with attractive prices!! We recommend.

  • Going back in time. great aroma mix of fruits veggies and spices. worth a visit
  • Great place to pick up groseries at a great price! Good pizza and cold cuts
  • Is a historical food market in Mendoza downtown, you can spend half day here trying flavors and textures from differents vendors. Highly recommnded if you are a foodie.
  • The food here was pretty cheap. There are several restaurants, as well as places where you can buy meat or other groceries.
  • 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.
