Now, the people behind it have put extreme efforts in setting up one in different points in Manila and soon in Visayas and Mindanao.
With the success of opening branches comes another one. What used to be the Mercato in the South -Soderno Molito, had shut down for some reasons, they are now bringing back the weekend market in a new spot.
EL SUR – the NEWEST Mercato Centrale market will be open in Alabang Town Center (beside Fully Booked) every Friday (4pm – 3am) & Saturday (12nn - 12mn) starting November 23 (Saturday)!
“After a short break from the South, we are excited to be back in the area!“ enthused Anton Diaz, co-founder of the Mercato Centrale group and the blogger behind the popular food and travel blog in the Philippines www.OurAwesomePlanet.com. “Thanks to all the support from our Southern-based foodie fans who have been clamoring for our return.”
“We look forward to bringing the Mercato Centrale foodie experience to Alabang Town Center, which includes a variety of great-tasting and innovative food choices straight from the homes of the South-based chefs and homemakers, acoustic entertainment and a lively atmosphere“ said RJ Ledesma, co-founder of the Mercato Centrale group. “We will also have the best-selling vendors from our various Mercato markets sharing their famous dishes in EL SUR!”
“We also want to find the next big food entrepreneur from the South!” added Anton. “The Mercato markets have been the birthplace of many expanding Manila food businesses like Manang’s Chicken, Merry Moo Premium Ice Cream, Spring by Ha-Yuan, Kristina’s Inutak, Chuck’s Grubberie Fish and Chips and many more. We are happy to note that one of our pioneer Mercato vendors, Mochiko Ice Cream, already has a branch here in Alabang Town Center!”
