As  you open the doors of Mercato Fine Foods, the sounds of friendly chit-chat and the aromas of home-cooked specialties and robust espresso transports you to a charming Italian village.

Taking its inspiration from the culture-rich country of Italy, the bakery-deli’s name translates to market. And that is exactly the feeling that customers get when they come in from a busy day to browse the selection, grab a bite or replenish their weekly groceries. “The vibrant colours in our décor invite you inside,” says Rosanna Loiero, who owns Mercato with her husband, Salvatore Loiero. “I think we’ve created a very welcoming atmosphere,” he says.

The store offers an outstanding selection of delectable breads, which are baked on premise. If it’s something sweet that you seek, Mercato bakes nearly 30 varieties of treats, using innovative presentations. Decadent cakes and pastries are delicious works of art made fresh by world-class pastry chefs, and prepared in traditional Italian and French styles, with no artificial flavours or preservatives. “Our artisan gelato offers unique and intense flavours, made fresh with wholesome ingredients and no preservatives,” says Rosanna. With a focus on upholding the highest of standards, Mercato satisfies every visitor, but leaves them wanting more. “Our hot table is a popular favourite, because we constantly introduce different dishes,” says Salvatore.

As a remarkable specialty foods store located in the quaint town of Caledon, the family-run business also provides deli meats and gourmet cheeses from around the world, as well as specialty oils, vinegars and preserves, so that you can bring a little bit of Italy home with you.

Mercato helps you make your special event a memorable one, with freshly prepared, authentic food. Special event planner Rosalia Silvestri will help you select all the right touches for your event.

So whether you’re catering a simple dinner, hosting a corporate lunch or just looking for a great cup of coffee, Mercato is ready to serve you.
