“Where do we eat in Mandaue City” is a question that did not have a lot of answers back then as most of the interesting dining establishments in the industrial city were located along A.S. Fortuna.
But last August 3, a new food destination formally opened on the other side of Mandaue City, at the Mandaue Reclamation Area. Say hello to The Market by Sugbo Mercado!
The first “containerized” food park in Mandaue City has an area of approximately 2,500 square meters and uses 28 container vans for its main structure. The food and beverage tenants have been carefully selected so that they’re distinct from one another – from a number of popular brands at Sugbo Mercado IT Park, to new and unique concepts. The Market continues Sugbo Mercado’s role as an “incubator” for startup businesses and we’re thrilled to witness a couple more business success stories!
Because of its high ceiling, ventilation is not an issue at The Market
The dining area can accommodate up to 350 people. Soon, the second floor will be a coffee shop / co-working space.
The Market by Sugbo Mercado is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 5PM to 1AM. They are located at Mantawi International Drive (in front of MO2 Westown Lagoon & across UC Med), Mandaue Reclamation Area.
Starting next week, The Market will be having themed nights. Check this out:
Tuesdays – Movie Nights
Wednesdays – Trivia/Slogos Nights
Thursdays – Poetry Nights
Fridays-Sundays – Bands
Meanwhile, check out some of the vendors at The Market. Since they are each assigned a container, they have freedom to design their space to suit their flavor and branding.
