Founded by Oscar Farinetti in Alba, Italy, in 2004, Eataly marketplaces have since grown into a global chain. Each stand-alone food hall is a giant melting pot of Italian produce, restaurants and bars. Some – including the new London branch – even boast a cooking school.
Eataly offers Italian take-home produce as well as on-site restaurants and bars
Ahead of the London opening, Eataly CEO Luca Baffigo revealed that Borough Market was in fact an inspiration for the first ever Eataly outlet in Italy. 'Visiting Borough Market before opening our first Eataly in Italy was a source of great inspiration for our concept,' he said. 'This is why opening a place in London where people can buy, eat and learn is a very important and exciting milestone for us. Being able to bring our model into a place that is so significant for us fills us with satisfaction and stimulates us to create in London a wonderful multifunctional experience.'
The London branch of Eataly is expected to open in summer 2020
