Merca, also Merka or Marka, is a small town in southeastern Somalia, just south of Mogadishu. The town had its fifteen minutes of fame when it became the centre of the Banana war, when two warlords disputed the town because it was a major centre of banana exports. The Bananas are grwon in the irrigated area around Janhale on the Shabeelle (Shebele) River.

Merca also has a beach, called Sinbusi, which is okay.
