As London’s premier horticultural market, New Spitalfields Market offers the widest range of fruit, vegetables and flowers in the City. It houses the largest number of wholesalers and has the highest turnover, thereby making it the UK’s leading horticultural market. Operating under a Royal Charter which was granted in 1682, ‘Old’ Spitalfields Market moved out of the City in 1991 and now occupies a purpose built 31 acre site in Leyton, East London known as New Spitalfields Market. The Market consists of a Market Hall of 28,700 square metres (309,000 square feet) which houses 118 trading units for wholesalers dealing in fruit, vegetables and flowers.
