West Bengalâ€™s Commerce & Industries Minister Saurindra Roy and colleagues have visited Borough Market as part of a fact-finding tour of the riverside.
Market Trustees Chairman George Nicholson hosted the visit which began with a presentation in the Trustees' Board Room followed by a Market tour. Others present included representatives from English Heritage and the London Rivers Association.
The Market is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme, partly-funded by the London Development Association. The works include sympathetic renovation of the original market and a Floral Hall extension incorporating Victorian ironwork from the old Covent Garden Market.
The ancient wholesale fruit and vegetable market, well known for its twice-weekly retail food market, recently won the Visit London award for the Londoners' most popular capital attraction.
