Thank you to all the foodies who celebrated with us the historic opening week (last July 26-28) of Mezza Norte — the Mercato of the North!

Despite the rains and the huge crowd, we shared yummy eating moments with friends, and family. It was fun to see the smile on everyone’s face and tummy 🙂

We are adding more tents to make the space bigger, and adding more food entreprenuers to make it yummier going into the BER season.

Here is a photo essay of the first Friday market day of Mezza Norte:

You got to try Tuguegarao’s Best Pansit Batil-Patong only in Mezza Norte!

The home made pansit is prepared carefully in front of you and the ingredients are cooked with bulalo broth.

  1. Mr. Anton Diaz when will you plan to open night food market in the City of Manila. not in makati. not in alabang. not in ortigas. not in quezon city. please!!! we have many foodies also here in Manila

  2. Hi.
    I went to Mezza Norte on its first Saturday despite the heavy rain. It was my first time to visit a food “bazaar”. It was good. However, my biggest complaint is the shortage of seats. It was just too few. Plus, the place needs more trash cans.
    More power!

  3. how i wish mezza norte is located in a more convenient place, like qc circle where the space is bigger and no limited parking.
