Mercato Metropolitano is a sustainable street food market hidden away in the back streets of Elephant and Castle.
Choose between the warmth of the indoors during winter, or the coolness of the outdoors on a bright summers day as you struggle to pick between Asian, South American and European cuisines, to name a few. And with craft beer, cocktails and gelato on site, you’ll likely spend a whole afternoon enjoying the buzzing atmosphere of where cool Londoners hang out.
If you’re looking for a little extra from a local market, then check out the independent cinema, or the cooking classes on offer. Or, why not pop into the supermarket for a true feel of Italy?
This market has just about everything you need to keep you entertained on a weekend, but as it’s open Monday – Sunday, avoid the crowds by trying it out on a week day. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
