The Mercado is located West of I-10 in the Menlo Park neighborhood of Downtown Tucson.
Local love and a sense of place.
Our goal is to be a reflection of the community we love, Tucson. Our open air courtyard is lined with shops, restaurants and services that embody the Tucson vibe. Eat, drink, shop, relax & enjoy the many special events such as our Thursday afternoon farmers market and weekend brunch.
Fostering local growth.
The mission of the MSA is to support local business entrepreneurs with a focus on local foods and artisan made goods. The Mercado San Agustin Philanthropic Fund was established to give back to the community. The fund offers a variety of opportunities including the support and education of aspiring entrepreneurs. Partnerships with like minded organizations like the Community Food Bank and MicroBuisness Advancement Center help further this goal. Our commercial kitchen plays a pivotal role in incubating business growth. For more info on our fund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
An old world ‘new’ facility. Green is good!
MSA was built in 2010 with a goal to conserve resources in our desert environment. MSA is posed to achieve LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold status from the United States Green Build Council. We hold ourselves to a higher design standard and have included water harvesting, solar panels and rastra block walls into our ‘desert’ smart design. MSA mixes modern green architecture with old world charm.
Sustainable neighborhood & future plans.
Located within the newly developed Mercado District of Menlo Park and the future Mission District, the MSA has the benefit of being located in Tucson’s most beautiful new mixed-use transit oriented neighborhoods. With the Tucson Modern Streetcar stop just a few steps from our entrance, we are part of Tucson’s expanding city center. The builders of the Mercado District lovingly claim that they are building a future historic district. The Mission District future plans include dense mixed-use development that will offer mixing housing, retail and commercial spaces furthering the synergy of a downtown revival.
