We are a group of 4 young entrepreneurs that share passion for gastronomy and unsettled that certain ingredients and culinary arts are progressively being forgotten. This is mainly due to the fast changes in lifestyle and standardization of globalized food, resulting in the loss of a culinary diversity.
This is the reason why we have chosen to create Merci Mercado, to find and "rescue" those forgotten ingredients that contain a great gastronomic richness and deserve to be put in their fair value.
We work closely with the producers to respect their values, traditions and the environment that surrounds them. Merci Mercado assures to preserve the product with as much authenticity as possible and deliver it to the chefs and lovers of fine cuisine, with exquisite ingredients of the highest standards of quality.
We decided to begin this journey working with insects due to the fact that it shows what Merci Mercado represents, but soon we will be including other ingredients. Therefore, if there is any ingredient you would like for us to "rescue," do not hesitate to contact us.
We are sure that everyone will enjoy and appreciate our products as much as we do.
