This 27,000-square-foot, highly anticipated development will house 12 finely curated restaurants, 2,300 square-foot private event space, an 8,000-square-foot open-air covered courtyard, a 3,300 square-foot rooftop bar as well as the only craft brewery in Cocoa Beach, making it an invaluable addition to the local community.

With a focus on providing a unique and memorable experience for visitors, Cocoa Beach Mercado will become a culinary and entertainment haven for locals and tourists alike.

The expected completion date for Cocoa Beach Mercado is set for fall 2025.

The Mercado will feature 12 independently owned restaurant concepts, while the craft brewery will be showcased by floor-to-ceiling windows giving guests the unique opportunity to watch a working brewery in action.

Cocoa Beach Mercado will have multiple private event spaces catering to events, groups and weddings. The 2,300-square-foot ground level event space will have space for approximately 160 guests. The flexible space will open to the covered open-air courtyard to expand the space for larger events and make way for multiple seating areas for larger groups and parties.

The combination of open green space and semi-private seating areas will be surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping and multiple water features.

The CB Mercado is the brainchild of native Cocoa Beach resident Daniel Todd. Daniel’s first foray into the hospitality industry was in 2019 when he opened a local favorite, 4th Street Fillin Station.

In speaking with Daniel Todd, he said, “I’m excited to bring this new concept to Cocoa Beach. The Cocoa Beach Mercado will bring together a diverse variety of food concepts, locally brewed beer, and an amazing cocktail program mixed with a roof top bar and event space all in one place.”

The local community is eagerly anticipating the groundbreaking of Cocoa Beach Mercado.“I am excited to see this project come to life. This will be an amazing upscale dining and entertainment venue for Cocoa Beach residents and tourists alike”, said Cocoa Beach Mayor, Keith Capizzi.
