*Mission Federal ArtWalk Sat-Sun, April 25-26*

The full-size Little Italy Mercato is open 51 weeks a year, rain or shine, fulfilling all of the grocery and gift needs of downtown San Diego residents and visitors. But for one weekend every spring, we make room for the wonderful creations on display at the Mission Federal ArtWalk taking place Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26 throughout Little Italy.

Cedar St. and India St. (outside of Burger Lounge) from 8AM-6PM on Saturday and 11AM-6PM on Sunday. With fresh fruits and vegetables from JR OrganicsNicolau Farms goat cheese, Poppa’s Fresh Fish, award-winning Mikolich Honey, and The California Olive oils and vinegars, we’ve got all the essentials covered for our loyal Mercato customers.
