Bustling and colourful Mercato, the largest market in Africa

In the centre of Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia, lies one of the world’s largest open air markets: Mercato. This market has been in existence from the early 1900s. When the Italians came to Ethiopia in the 1930s, they named this market Mercato, which means market in Italian.
Definitive stamps Menelik Bushbuck (2002). In Ethiopia two types of Bushbuck can be found: Meneliki and Powelli. Both are fairly widespread and can be seen in much of Ethiopia's highland forest.
