The market today
Today Smithfield Market, over 140 years old but on the site for almost one thousand years, is a fully EU approved wholesale market.
It has seen many changes and yet continues to shift and evolve, with each stall meeting the latest hygiene regulations and adapting to changes in food fashions with the same efficiency, good humour and elegance it has shown throughout the centuries. For the market is not just a series of buildings but is about the people who bring it to life – the managers, the traders, the buyers and the visitors.
