Be a Mercato vendor!

Think you have what it takes to be an up-and-coming food business in Mercato? Please read this page thoroughly before filling up the application form.

  • The first step to being a Mercato vendor is to pass the taste test. Taste tests are held every Tuesday from 1 PM to 3 PM at the A Space Kitchen, 7/F A Space Bldg on 110 Legazpi St., Makati City.
  • Vendor-applicants should prepare food samples (bite sized or small servings) good for 30 persons.
  • We want to taste your food at its best, so we encourage vendor-applicants to cook on-site at our kitchen for maximum freshness. You can use our stove and electrical outlets, but please do bring your own kitchen utensils (pans, chopping boards, knives, and so on!).
  • Please bring disposable food containers (plates/cups/utensils) for purposes of the taste test.
  • Treat #TasteTestTuesday like it’s the real deal. Please do have a menu for display, and a mock-up of your booth design and during the taste test.
  • To ensure that you get the attention and space you deserve, we encourage you to book your taste test ahead of time.
  • Give us 3 to 7 days to deliberate on your stall. We will inform all vendor-applicants of our decision on their stalls through phone call, so sit tight and keep your phones close!

Advance payment is equivalent to minimum of 12 nights x rental rate.
