Mercado del Puerto - Montevideo
El Mercado del Puerto is busy on Saturdays at noon - this picture was taken a little early. El Mercado is especially notable as a marketplace because it is not only indoors, but in a french designed stucture from 1865 that reminds one of an old train depot. It's a great place to eat (note how much we ate on this trip), pick up some recuerdos and maybe even listen to live Candombe. Try the ravioletas "La Chacra" at La Chacra. It was the best pasta I tasted during the whole trip.
