Mercato brings independent groceries into the future. In the days before the supermarket, people went to local shops to get food: the baker, the fruit stand, the small grocery store. Food artisans provided good, clean food and kept close to the land, to the source, and became masters of their crafts over decades of work. Small grocery stores were the keystones of their communities, and still are today. Incredibly, there has been a resurgence of food artisans and independent groceries in recent years. Mercato elevates your access to these food providers.
