The first and the original. Mercato Elephant & Castle opened its doors in 2016 and is London’s first sustainable community market. Housed in a formerly abandoned paper factory, it’s one of the city’s largest undercover outdoor areas—a vibrant space where everyone (young and old) can come together and have good time. Discover over 40 independent stallholders serving up an eclectic array of natural, nutritious, accessible food and drink alongside a micro-brewery, music, events and community projects.
