Ciao Bella! A New Italian Food Market Has Launched In London

Update: Mercato Metropolitano is now open!

Following a successful opening in Milan last year, Italian dreamer Andrea Rasca has brought the authentic Italian market experience to SoBo (that’s South of Borough, by the way). With a focus on good honest artisan food and empowering small Italian and British producers, Mercato Metropolitano is set to be the top spot for discerning food lovers across the capital.

Located in an old disused paper factory near Elephant & Castle, MM’s core values of sustainability and urban renewal will be visible throughout; from the recycled materials to the authentic, industrial warehouse environment. They have gathered the very best artisan producers to fill the 45,000 sq ft space; including an onsite bakery, fishmongers, butchers, coffee roasters, charcuterie, Italian wines, pasta, pizza and so much more.

And it’s more than just food! They have everything from cookery demos and musical performances to an in-house cinema and even a pop-up hotel. Dominic Lake, co-dreamer of MM, says that the success of the market will be measured in smiles — “if we see people smiling we know we have created something of value”. We are already smiling at the thought of pizza and wine…

Mercato Metropolitano is open Tuesday till Sunday, 11am-11pm. You can find it at 48-52 Newington Causeway, SE1 6DR.
