Mercato Mayfair is a stunning gastronomic emporium set within a restored historical church in the heart of London’s fashionable Mayfair district. Once the holy St Mark’s, deconsecrated in 1974, this space has since blossomed into a premier destination for authentic, sustainable food. Sprawling across two extensive floors, it offers an international palate of culinary delights, complemented by a rooftop terrace, an exquisite wine cellar, and a communal area that binds food and people in perfect harmony. This upmarket venue is more than just a food market; it’s a culinary experience that celebrates the richness of global cuisine. Offering a curated selection of artisanal products, fine wines, and gourmet delicacies, Mercato Mayfair is a haven for food enthusiasts. From farm-fresh produce and ethically-sourced meats to bespoke pastries and specialty coffees, crafted beers and more, the range of high-quality offerings is truly unparalleled.
A Restoration of History and Culinary Excellence
Having braved three decades on England’s Historic Heritage Risk Register, the Grade 1-listed St Mark’s received a rejuvenating touch with a two-year £5 million restoration, generously funded by Grosvenor estates. This meticulous endeavour not only restored its historical charm but also accentuated its architectural beauty. Today, Mercato Mayfair stands as a testament to quality and commitment. Every corner of this marketplace sings praises to the artisanal, sustainable, and fresh ingredients. Vendors, hand-picked for their dedication to food excellence, introduce visitors to a world of healthy living. Embracing cuisines from around the globe; from fluffy bao buns and aromatic ramen that capture the essence of Asian flavours to traditional German beers that delight with each sip, there’s no shortage of gastronomic experiences. Authentic Japanese matcha provides a moment of zen, while the complex and rich flavours of Southeast Asian dishes add a burst of spice to your culinary journey. And let’s not forget the crafted cocktails, premium gins and wine cellar are perfect for those looking for a sophisticated drink. It’s a feast that caters to diverse food preferences and cravings. Mercato Mayfair provides an urban platform for diverse food practices and traditions. While the offerings remain steeped in authenticity and culture, there is a relentless drive to incorporate locally sourced, natural ingredients, embodying a global vision with a quintessential local heart.
