The tradition of winter markets dates back to the French region of Alsace in the 1400’s where craftsmen displayed their arts and commodities during the winter season, from food specialties to hand crafted wooden toys.The tradition has lasted throughout the centuries and spread to other cities in France. This winter, The French Corner is bringing this tradition to London with an Après Ski twist.

Starting in late November, quaint wooden stalls will line the market creating a festive holiday atmosphere. As well as the food and drink offering, you’ll find a program of events and workshops that will take place in the market, including our resident Jazz Band, Monomer, who will be playing everyday throughout the winter months. The French Corner - Winter Edition is open at Mercato Metropolitano until March 2018, Monday to Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday 11am-10pm.

A romantic journey over London Bridge and you’ll find yourself in an Après Ski-like winter paradise. Immerse yourself in French culture at the edge of The Thames, with traditional delicacies and past times. Relax and unwind in the early evening, and even have a little dance later on.. Our renowned mixologist will be providing Christmas cocktails, mulled wine, cider, organic wine and champagne from our bar too!

The French Corner is the ultimate festive food market, where an array of French savouries and desserts await - you’ll also find our oyster connoisseur providing his delicious dish from his stall or by the fire! Classics like Tartiflette and Duck Confit Burgers will be at your finger tips as well as Crepes, Buche de Noel, Macaroons and other delicious French pastries which are freshly prepared in a typical street market style. Enjoy the warm cosy atmosphere while walking through the stalls, or sit by the glowing fire and watch the variety of jolly French carnival performers.

Mercato Metropolitano is a community food and cultural hub with the allure of a farmers market. It’s a playground for food lovers and artisan food producers to meet, talk, relax, shop and eat - because amazing things happen when you share a meal with your friends.

Bought tickets for the French corner, paid for a table reservation and rang to confirm. Got there and it was closed, never opened the whole time we were there. £50 spent on tickets for no reason. Could I get a refund please? Visited Mercato Metropolitano on 2017-12-01
