Covent Garden Market

Local nameCovent Garden Market
LocationLondon, UK

Back in the 17th century, the area was occupied by stalls and sheds selling fruit and vegetables. In 1830, Charles Fowler was commissioned to design the current Neoclassical building and he turned it into a prominent and popular market place. Additional buildings such as the Floral Hall or the Jubilee Market were added later.

This former fruit and vegetable market has turned into a popular shopping district where tourists swarm in crowds. Today, you will find almost everything here - British-made crafts, jewelry, leather, clothes, sweets or artwork and antiques. Enjoy the special atmosphere of the place packed with more than twenty restaurants and bars. The outdoor Farmers' Market takes place on the square from May to December.
