Borough Market

Borough Market


Borough Market is one of London's oldest wholesale fruit and vegetable markets, established by Act of Parliament in 1756 and administered by 21 trustees who have to live in the local community. It covers an area of 4.5 acres.

Operating in the early hours of the morning, the streets used to be quiet and empty during the day. But not any more. Known in its heyday as London's Larder, the capital relied on Borough Market for its essential supplies. It is now being reborn as a retail centre of excellence in addition to the trade activities.
