Mercado Roma

Mercado Roma the new uber hipster  destination spot in Colonia Roma ( Mexico City ) throbs with a passionate energy. Its debut was marked with celebrity chef sightings, Renee Redzepi of Noma fame and Alice Water of Chez Panisse were there, and its opening formed part  of the closing events for Chef Enrique Olveras Mesamerica Conference.

The Mercado Roma describes itself as a Mercado Gourmet de Vanguardia en Mexico,  a cutting edge Mexican gourmet market, akin to the now famous Eataly .

Its list of stands runs the gamut of the best in Mexican cuisine and gastronomy.

From the Antojeria section that features classics like Chef Ricardo Munoz’s Azul to Chef Jose Ramon Castillo’s award winning chocolate creations at Que BO! all are meant to artfully attract and entice .
