Food hubs have become a trend in Cebu ever since the birth of Sugbo Mercado in IT Park. Even those living in far north would really go out of their way to Cebu City just to dine and hang out with friends. But now, those who are residing in the north, especially in Mactan or Lapu-Lapu City, won’t have to travel too far to get their dine-and-chill fix.
Mercato de Mactan is the newest “hangout craze” in Lapu-Lapu City, your ultimate night market. It’s an open food market (like Sugbo Mercado) and offers a big, space venue for diners and vendors selling a variety of food and drinks. They also have live bands to spice up your experience.
Open on Thursdays to Sundays from 5PM to 1AM, Mercato de Mactan is located at So-ong II, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu — across Pacha de Mactan, few meters away from Mactan Newtown.
If you’re interested to put up a store, you can call them at 0917-301-4528.
