Anchored by Whole Foods Market, Nordstrom Rack and Silverspot Cinema, a 12-screen premier-style theater, Mercato offers 12 notable restaurants, over 20 upscale retailers and luxury residential condominiums. Mercato hosts a vibrant year-round event calendar with most events free and open to the public. Mercato is Naples Florida’s newest shopping, boating and dining district is just a couple of miles away and is a short drive or bike ride away.
For fine shopping, hit Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. Further north, the Village at Venetian Bay and the Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay are lush outdoor boutique malls. At the Mercato Shops, in addition to a variety of stores and a Whole Foods, you’ll find a luxury movie theater. Coastland Center is a typical name brand indoor mall. You may want to do some souvenir shopping at Tin City Waterfront Shops before or after a Naples Bay boat cruise. You can also visit Naples own Outlet Center, but it is small in comparison to others; true outlet enthusiasts will want to head north to the Miromar Outlets in Estero.
Moreover, Vanderbilt Beach is home to Gumbo Limbo-The Ritz Carlton beachfront restaurant, Turtle Club-another outstanding beachfront restaurant and Baleen-the acclaimed La Playa Beach and Golf Resort beachfront hotel.
