Hospitality, Restaurant, Retail

El Mercado de Paseo Caribe is a 19,000 square-foot gourmet food hall and market that houses a variety of culinary offerings from award-winning local chefs and food purveyors, along with an expansive oceanfront terrace that allows customers to dine al fresco with views to the Condado Lagoon.

El Mercado was conceived to bring the excitement and flare of the Caribbean to the Paseo Caribe development. Anchoring the lofty 50 foot high central area is the main bar featuring a multi-story back bar that serves as an organizing hub for the overall floor plan. The design and art mirror the Latin traditions of the island, and public performances by popular local musicians add to its festive ambiance.

Featuring 15 culinary stations showcasing Puerto Rico’s celebrated and up-and-coming chefs, it also provides the neighborhood with a shopping destination for specialty culinary items from the island’s finest local purveyors.
