Normal delivery times

This depends on how and when you order. Normally orders are despatched the next working day. For South Island customers, this means you should receive your parcel within 2~4 working days. For North Island customers, this means you should receive your parcel within 3~5 working days. If you have not received your delivery within these timeframes please call us on 0800 MERCATO.

Product availability

From time to time there are heavy demands on particular products. As we deal mainly with small artisan suppliers and some of our range is seasonal, it is not always possible to replenish our supplies immediately. We recommend you order early to avoid disappointment and apologise if the product you seek is sold out.
