From mid-October 2018, food shopping as we know it is about to change, with the opening of Australia’s newest food shopping concept Mercado on King Street, Brisbane. In just a few months a world-class marketplace will open its doors in the heart of Brisbane, bringing a touch of magic to city and fulfilling food shopping dreams with 1500 square meters of unimaginable food experiences.
Mercado is the soon to be gemstone of premier retail and dining precinct, King Street, open from dawn until dusk, packed to the rafters with everything from seafood, meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, chocolates, fruits, vegetables and everyday convenience items, to speciality teas, bottles and more. Food shoppers will be packing their pantries full of the very freshest and finest produce and ingredients Australia has to offer, selecting from the shelves of a venue that epitomises architectural perfection.
Project Manager of new foodie concept and spokesperson for Mercado Group, the team behind the development, Shaun Dunleavy, said Mercado is an Australian, even global first, putting a contemporary, luxury spin on day-to-day food shopping.
“Mercado was born out of a deep passion for connecting people, over one of life’s greatest pleasures; food. We set out to tantalise tastebuds and inspire human connection within a bustling, world-class marketplace experience,” he said.
“Mercado was established to take you anywhere and everywhere; to give you a place to explore diversity, create memories and unite over a mutual appreciation for fine quality produce. The concept will be the ultimate food shopping experience, turning weekly grocery shops into culinary food journeys.”
Mercado has been actualised by a team of the world’s best architects, designers and builders and is set to open its doors mid-October 2018.
