Spitalfields Market has existed in Spitalfields, East London, since 1638. The current buildings were built in 1887 to house a wholesale fruit and vegetable market, and are now known as Old Spitalfields Market. The wholesalers moved in 1991 to New Spitalfields Market, but the old market, complete with restored Victorian buildings, remains one of London’s most popular – open seven days a week but especially popular on Sundays, it is renowned for its fashion, food and vintage stalls and a tourist attraction in its own right.
