The Story Behind MERCADO PET: From Passion to Reality

Updated: Feb 22

The Story Behind MERCADO PET: From Passion to Reality Have you ever wondered how MERCADO PET came to be? Well, let me take you on a journey behind the scenes and share the story of how this unique pet shop became a reality. It all started when we welcomed a little Maltese pup into our family. Born in Brazil, Lila made all of us understand the joy and companionship that pets bring to our lives, and we wanted to create a space where pet owners could find everything they needed to care for their furry friends. She became the light and the reason behind our business!

As we navigate though our mission and to why, we wanted to create a pet shop that goes beyond just selling products. We wanted to create a space where pet owners could come together, share their love for animals, and connect with like-minded individuals. We chose the word MERCADO, because it means "grocery store" in Portuguese, our native language. The warm and inviting atmosphere of MERCADO PET, coupled with the friendly Brazilian roots, makes it a place where pet owners feel welcomed and valued. What sets MERCADO PET apart is our commitment to supporting local pet crafters. We believe in the power of community and the importance of supporting local businesses. By showcasing products made by local artisans, MERCADO PET not only offers unique and high-quality items, but also helps foster a sense of community among pet owners. So, if you're a pet owner looking for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience, MERCADO PET is the place to be. Not only will you find high-quality food, including raw options and products to care for your beloved pet, but you'll also be supporting local businesses and becoming part of a community that shares your love for animals. Here are a few tips to make the most of your visit to MERCADO PET: 1. Take your time: With so many amazing products to choose from, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Take your time to explore the shelves and discover new and exciting items for your pet. We're a small pet boutique, but with big things to offer! 2. Talk to the owners: We are always ready to assist you. Whether you need advice on choosing a new walking set, the right toy or recommendations for a raw food diet, don't hesitate to ask! We're just as pet owners as you are, and everyday is a day to share great tips. Got a suggestion? Let us know! 3. Support local: By purchasing products made by local pet crafters, you are not only getting unique and high-quality items, but you are also supporting the local economy and helping small businesses thrive, like ours too. 4. Attend in-store events: MERCADO PET is big in giving back to the community! We plan year round community events, such as pet food drives, Clean Toronto Together Park (coming soon) and in-store events. These events are a great opportunity to connect with other pet owners and learn more about our pet-loving community.

MERCADO PET is more than just a pet shop. It is a place where passion for animals meets the reality of creating a community-focused space for pet owners. So, the next time you're in the Junction neighbourhood, make sure to visit MERCADO PET and meat the family!
