Mercato Metropolitano in London is the first community-based sustainable market with an Italian soul. I’s the first site in the United Kingdom and is located in Zone 1, in the heart of the Borough Triangle, just a few minutes walk from both Borough and Elephant and Castle underground stations. The Market has aggregated and incubated about forty food and beverage artisans, a highly cared-for cinema, a creative space, a boxing gym, a Bavarian brewery in circular economy and three urban hydroponic, aeroponic and mushroom cultivation farms with coffee grounds, to name a few. The London Metropolitan Market was inaugurated in 2016 by its Italian founder Andrea Rasca as the first location outside the original site of Milan, offering an impressive permanent range of small artisan, farmers and established producers who bring the best of Italian and international food in the heart of London.
