One of Europe’s major appeals is strongly associated with its luxury food offerings. Around every corner, there is a bustling market or a lavish food hall, where bulk-buy supermarkets are a thing of the past. We want quality and we want it now!

Brisbane’s newest foodie addition surpasses the likes of any local deli. Mercado is the ultimate fresh food marketplace, now around the corner from you. Situated on King Street, it perfectly aligns with the street reviving respect for great food. With world-class produce ready to fill your pantry with fresh ingredients, Mercado is an unforgettable shopping experience. From foods exploring diversity to everyday convivence items, Mercado has a gourmet selection of seafood, meats, cheeses, bread, pastries, chocolates, fruit and vegetables. For those that can’t quite master picking out the fresh fruit and veg from the piles of supermarket produce, this is your fresh food failsafe.

While most aren’t ready to sacrifice the cheap prices of chain supermarkets, Mercado is luxury without the price tag. True accessibility means their prices are more than reasonable for the quality you are purchasing, analogous to an IGA price point. In a celebration of Australian produce and global, diverse ingredients, it is finally time to swap out your usual flash frozen fruit and veg for organic, paddock to plate goodies. No longer will you have to troll the internet for truffle and caviar delicacies or test the waters with questionable exotic fish, Mercado makes luxury dining simple, accessible and affordable.

Soon introducing a new concierge service, Mercado will allow you to sit at the bar sipping a cocktail while you order from an iPad. Their personal shoppers will do the work for you, as you collect your items as you exit. Otherwise, order ahead and collect at a later time. They are all about making the shopping experience effortless – it is ‘click and collect’ with the assurance of fresh produce. Food tasting and events are always happening and you can even call ahead for a guided tour on arrival! Dine in at their in-house restaurant, the Hong Kong, Taiwanese and Japanese inspired Duck Room or bask in woodfired pizza. Mercado has it all.
