About Us

Mercado Central's mission is to bring people together through discovery, inspiration, authenticity and community.  We are Spaniards living in New York and New Yorkers with a home in Spain.  We are friends who have become an urban family after years of shared meals, travel, and celebrations.  One evening, during sobremesa, the mutual respect of cultures, desire to learn, and love of food inspired the idea for MERCADO CENTRAL.  

Our goal is to contribute to an environment around your table that inspires the conversations and forms the connections that re-establish our sense of community and humanity - diminished through this pandemic.

A great meal is a journey for your senses.  Whether bringing you back to a memory from the past, or inspiring you to expand your boundaries, sitting around the table and sharing a meal brings us to different parts of the world from our own home.
