This spectacular space will just draw you in, housed within the various out buildings that were once a huge paper factory, Mercato Metropolitano spans over 45000 ft. and has both indoor and outdoor space,
where you can sit and eat food from their amazing and vast range of Italian counters, it’s your choice.
Excellently and beautifully planned across the whole factory footprint, the Mercato presents a plethora of small individual Italian food outlets/counters
all under one roof, In fact, you will be spoilt for choice when you have to decide ‘what’ to pick to eat. Sharing some similarities to South London’s Brixton Village, Mercato is made up a large number of small counters where you buy the food
of your choice and then eat it in the communal area you feel more at home.
All of the food on offer is produced in Italy and includes a butchers, fishmongers, bakers, various coffee counters and not forgetting the cheesemongers, charcuterie, pasta makers
and of course the pizza stalls, if you like Italian food then look no further, it’s a no brainer, you will love this place.
Based on its original sites in Turin and Milan, Italy, you would be forgiven for thinking you were in the heart of these
two cities, whilst your there, most of the staff (if not all are Italian) and the food is of the finest quality, watch this space, this place is destined to be a rip roaring success, we LOVED it!
And, not forgetting there are various bars dotted about,
the most amazing wine shops and of course the Italian Mercato itself, selling all things Italian but a word of warning, the Mercato isn’t cheap but then, you ‘do’ get what you pay for!
In addition there is a gym, a barber shop and
even a pop-up hotel on site and a really cool pop up cinema, where you can relax on giant bean bags, lying on top of crushed pine, giving the illusion of an outdoor cinema viewing (without the cold) this place is vast and you will need time to get around it
and if you don’t manage that, then you WILL be back, this place is fantastic.
