Back in time, El Mercado was a small grocery shop featuring a selection of unique Mediterranean products in town, delicatessens, bread and bakeries, dry goods etc.
With this chill backyard in front of the shop, customers start to ask for a seat to chat after running their errands.
One table was added, two, five and more than 70 today !
The shop has grown, the products range extended, a kitchen appeared, the menu got drawn on a black board, and El Mercado Phai Singto was launch!
After 6 years El Mercado represents 3 restaurants, 3 groceries, a B2B business and a e-commerce platform.
It has all started with Axel and Lala, a Franco-Spanish couple in love of good products and desired to bring to Bangkok a taste of the Mediterranean and a range of unique products in town.
Joined by a bunch of passionate to support the expansion of the business, El Mercado represents today more than 150 employees dedicated to bring quality, consistency and unicity
