Mercado is an uber luxury, world-class food marketplace located on a corner of King Street, Bowen Hills - a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.
With 1,500 square metre of first-class food experiences and open from dawn 'til late, Mercado is the jewel in the crown of this premier Brisbane retail and dining precinct.
The architecturally-stunning venue has beautifully-crafted shelves and counters packed to the hilt with everything from seafood, meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, chocolates, fruits, vegetables and everyday convenience items, to speciality teas, bottles and more.
Here, food shoppers can select from the very freshest and finest produce and ingredients Australia has to offer, making for the ultimate food shopping experience and turning the weekly grocery shop into a culinary food journey. Best of all, despite the high-quality and the stunning setting, the prices are within reach.
Within Mercado you'll find a gorgeous bakery/patisserie, a massive seafood display at the entrance with a special oyster shucking station and, to the rear, gourmet meat, cheese and deli counters.
There's an impressive fruit and vegetable section offering top-quality, fresh produce and a coffee counter serving Mercado's own coffee sourced from the Sunshine Coast's Coco Coffee Roasters.
Not just a great place to shop, Mercado is a fine place to dine, too, with a sushi station, wood-fired pizzas, a bar serving cocktails, wine and beer and even an eatery devoted to ducks - The Duck Room.
Towards the rear, there's also a Beer Room stocking a great range of Australian and imported beers and spirits.
Nice to know - Mercado was created by a team of the world’s best architects, designers and builders.
