New sign adorning pizzeria in downtown Ocala

A new sign adorns the outside of a much-anticipated pizzeria in downtown Ocala, just in time for the crowds at this weekend’s arts festival.

On Wednesday, crews were seen installing the sign at the new Mellow Mushroom, which is under construction at 2 SW Fort King Street in downtown Ocala, across from the Marion Theatre.

Although an opening date has not yet been announced for the restaurant, Benmar Construction provided an update on progress last month and indicated that the pizzeria was “coming soon.

According to Benmar Construction, the photos are the “last” that will be published until the “finished result” is ready.

“We can’t wait to show you the completed project! Hope you’re hungry for [pizza emoji] because it’s coming soon!” reads the post.

Mellow Mushroom, which was first announced by Ocala-News.com in 2019, will join several other businesses that are in the process of opening new locations in downtown Ocala.

Katya Vineyards is currently renovating its new restaurant at 11 E Silver Springs Boulevard, which was previously home to Morevino.

Earlier this month, Symmetry Coffee Company opened its new space at 101 E Silver Springs Boulevard (Suite 102), taking over the former location of Katya Vineyards.
