Mercato Metropolitano Have Opened A Second Location In A Restored London Church

Mercato Mayfair has joined the Mercato Metropolitano family.

If you haven’t taken a lazy wander around Elephant & Castle’s wonderful Italian food hall, Mercato Metropolitano, then you’ve really been missing out. Seriously, take a look at this video and tell me you don’t want to pencil in a visit:

Happily, for those of you who don’t fancy the trek, or simply can’t abide the Bakerloo line, the group has just thrown open the doors on a second site in Mayfair. Billed simply as Mercato Mayfair, the new market is housed in the Grade-I listed St Mark’s Church, making this a food hall of divine proportions. The church recently underwent a two-year £5 million revamp, so you can expect this to be one gorgeous food hall and cultural space.

They’ve got four floors to play with so, naturally, Mercato Mayfair have filled them with restaurants, delis, cocktail bars, patisseries, and food counters galore. Community will be a key focus, and educational programs — including workshops, events and cookery classes — will take place in the vaulted basement. There’ll also be a rooftop terrace and outdoor space, which will be particularly lovely during the summer months.

All of this just moments away from Oxford Street! Can you believe it?

You’ll find Mercato Mayfair at 13A North Audley Street, W1K 6ZA. 

🍔 London is blessed with a host of top food markets for you to eat all the things. Happy munching! 🍕
