Inspired by iconic food halls such as London’s Harrod’s and Rome’s Eataly comes Mercado, a marketplace offering a premium selection of produce from Australia and around the world. Mercado’s 1500-sqm space is brimming with everything from seafood, meat and cheese to bread, fruit and vegetables. Everyday convenience items are available, alongside specialty chocolates, teas, beverages and more. The Mercado Group team describes the concept as a “contemporary, luxury spin on day-to-day food shopping”, and aims to create sensory experiences so that each visit to the marketplace is a memorable one. The store offers the likes of concierge and personal shopping services, as well as two bottle shops – one dedicated to Australian craft beers and spirits, the other to a globe-spanning selection of wines.
