In the last couple of months thanks to the EXPO Milan has grown and evolved to the delight of its citizens. As the EXPO this year is all about food the city is full of new restaurants, markets, and food seminars. The Mercato Metropolitan is a simple but yet brilliant idea that is similar to many farmer’s market around the USA.
As the name says it, the mercato is a food market in the heart of the city where you can taste delicious food or grocery shop for fresh organic products. An open space area of circa 15,000 square feet is divided between a street food court, the actual food market, an ice cream area and cinema area. I love the indoor area where you can buy fresh bread, organic jams or even meat or fish.
I’ve come here a couple of times for dinner and aperitivo. I love the fish food court where I had delicious grilled octopus. I also recommend you try the homemade pasta or the pizza. There are not a lot of places in Milan where you can eat under the stars at night or sit in the sun for a cocktail.
