Mercato Centrale is a destination lifestyle food market that delivers a wide variety of great and unique tasting food, organic, pastry, and beverage products that are one-of-a-kind.

It was inspired by the vibrant food markets of Mercato Centrale in Italy, Boroughs market in London as well as the hawker-type market in the bustling night markets of Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand.

They incubated many great food concepts that have successfully ‘graduated’ from the market and have grown and became successful themselves, including Manang’s Chicken, Mamalou’s, Shawarma Bros, Brasas, Bawai’s, Merry Moo, Sunrise Buckets, Tokyo Tempura and many more.

It was also the only food market in the Philippines mentioned in the World Atlas of Street Food published in 2017.

All of the vendors in their markets undergo a rigorous vetting process by participating in a ‘Taste Test’ regularly.

Moreover, Mercato Centrale together with the industry’s top players has already developed a Restaurant Business Network— a network of strategic partners (mentorship, product development, food and equipment suppliers, HR, business permits, micro-financing and financial literacy, accounting and taxation, payment gateways, brand management, digital marketing, packaging and design, food safety and hygiene) that help food startup businesses become sustainable, successful and scalable.
