Merkado serves up deliciously conscientious dishes from all-natural, organic and mostly local produce. A big believer of the slow food and farm-to-table concept, Merkado dishes out only nutritious and hearty meals. Binging here is easy on the guilt—not only because I’ll be having black or red rice, but because I know I’m helping out the local farmers in my own little way while feasting on really good food. What a responsible human being I’ve become.
What it means to be a Farm-to-Table Restaurant?
Generally, if a restaurant sources its products from a farm or ranch that doesn’t use hormones or pesticides, and they’re cutting the middlemen by bypassing commercial vendors, that is farm-to-table. Another reason to love Merkado, their homey interior! I am digging the mixed prints on the seats and the tiles.

Merkado continually proves that healthy can be yummy, too! And we totally support it.
