If you're a fan of Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant and Castle, you'll be very pleased indeed to learn that they're about to open a second market - Mercato Mayfair.
This will see them taking over a former church, the Grade I listed St Mark's (just off Oxford Street) which has just been through a big new £5 mil restoration courtesy of Grosvenor. So it should look very, very impressive inside. And definitely something to put onto any Oxford Street shopping itinerary.
Details are thin on the ground as to what exactly is going to appear at the market, but it should follow the pattern of the original. So that's a mix of "cuisines counters", a restaurant, a deli, cheese and wine stores, a coffee and gelato bar, patisserie, cocktail bar, a brewery and a flower shop. Expect events, workshops and cookery classes too in their vaulted basement.
We'll have more details on what's coming to the Mercato later.
