At Mercato Metropolitano (MM), we are growing quickly, and are searching for highly committed talent to join our teaMM.

MM is more than just a business; we are a movement of people committed to creating a truly sustainable and natural food value chain. It is very important to us that our best asset, our talent, has a strong understanding of food sovereignty and food security issues, recognition of the forces that shape climate change, and an open mind and passion for social causes, whilst maintaining an entrepreneurial approach to work, rather than a nine-to-five mentality.

We want our employees of today to be our leaders of tomorrow: people of all ages, colours and creeds who embrace our ethos and values, and are ready to become the biggest advocates of our sustainable, inclusive and supportive business model. We look for agile individuals who bring specific expertise to the table while being open to new ways of thinking. At MM, we are committed to the work of advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization and in the world. 


Mercato Metropolitano is leading a global movement driving sustainable food development to tackle some of the world’s biggest societal issues, from food security to climate change. Our sustainable community markets invite people to eat, buy, share, and learn about food. In 2016, our first site opened in Elephant & Castle. We saw 4 million visitors last year and incubated over 100 food start-ups to date. In November 2019, we launched our second London community market, Mercato Mayfair in St Mark – a Grade 1-Listed Building in Mayfair – and we are delivering two more London sites before the end of 2020.

We are much more than a food market: MM is an urban destination and a community space. We celebrate and build community through a diverse range of events, workshops, and cookery classes. We provide support to entrepreneurs and incubate start-ups to break down barriers and build a thriving economy. The environment is at the core of everything we do. We bring together natural, sustainable, and unadulterated food and serve it using recyclable or compostable materials. We have a zero-waste-to-landfill approach and aim for no single-use plastic across the market.

Ultimately, we have started a MMovement of artisans, health-conscious and ordinary people who want to make a much-needed positive contribution to the world, and help guarantee everyone access to nutritious and affordable food, while promoting sustainable practices across the whole food value chain.

We are now in an exciting phase of our growth. Our team is hugely collaborative, with a family-like approach. We are all incredibly passionate about what we do and in return, we get rewarded for our hard work. Our culture reflects our global mission and our brand values – social consciousness, community spirit, sustainability. We want more and more people to join our MMovement and help the Mercato Metropolitano project spread around the world.
