Coming soon
Summer 2024

Mercato Metropolitano (MM) is London’s first sustainable community food market focused on regenerating and revitalising urban neighbourhoods and building communities around good, healthy, and affordable food for everyone.

Community building lies at the heart of Mercato Ilford. All residents and visitors will access good and nutritious food from small artisans and independent food businesses–bringing local farmers and producers closer to the local community. MM Ilford will be an immersive space for creative community programmes, social events, cultural activities, cookery classes for children, workshops involving local artists, and celebrating people’s talents and skills. A welcoming and inclusive community hub for people to eat, buy, learn, and share food with friends and family.
