MMusic

MM is not only an incubator of emerging food businesses, it is also a place for artists and performers to showcase their talent.

In the past, we have collaborated with YMX Music — the new music platform for artists — to host local performers who want to perform in a vibrant environment with a fantastic audience. This is an opportunity not only to celebrate diverse, undiscovered musical talent in London, but for all of our visitors to enjoy music together.

Our Site

Our flagship site on Newington Causeway, Elephant & Castle is built on the site of a disused paper factory. The site is owned by Peabody – one of the oldest and most well-respected housing associations in London, and a company that shares MM’s values of community, quality, and social responsibility.

These values are maintained throughout every touchpoint of the site; from the recycled materials to the no-frills layout. It’s entirely based on a sustainable economic model that is socially responsible and an asset to the local community.

With its authentic environment, MM brings out the natural beauty of its industrial buildings and creates inviting spaces for the community. Our trading partners use only the very best ingredients, always keeping their passion and artisan values at heart.
