THE MARKET OF OPPORTUNITIES
“Mercafir is a reality that has a strong internal “identity”, but that struggles to impose itself in the external environment. For this reason, our “vision” is to push the borders of this place outside the its walks, to create interest from the Florentine and to make them attend the counters of this market”
WHAT IS IT?
The Market of opportunities is one of the tools used to connect the city with the multi-purpose food centre (CAP); it is an opportunity to offer to those who want fruit and vegetables at convenient prices and with the control of our experts.
The market of opportunities was created in 2006 with the idea to sell to private consumers at discounted rates, the fruit and vegetables that the wholesalers did not manage to sell in the morning to their usual clients.
The motto is “eating healthy and saving”! Quality and quantity and convenient prices! You buy in large packages, boxes of fruit or vegetables.
