How to get to Smithfield
Smithfield Market is located in the City of London and is close to landmarks such as the Barbican, St Paul’s Cathedral and St Bartholomew’s Hospital.
The nearest tube stations are Farringdon and Barbican - the market is only a few minutes walk from each.
The markets at Smithfield are open MONDAY to FRIDAY from 3am but are closed on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
Although some selling takes place until mid-morning, to see the market at its best and find the full range of stalls open, visitors and buyers should arrive by 7am.
Business customers wanting to pre-order should contact their chosen suppliers to arrange collection/delivery times.
Parking is available at the Rotunda car park which has 495 parking spaces including six designated electric vehicle charging bays. There are loading bays for vans and lorries around the market. There is also a goods lift to carry stock into the car park if required. Market customers get a special car park rate of £1.50 per visit per day if they enter the car park after 2.30am and leave by 9am. However visitors should also remember that Smithfield is within the Congestion Charge Zone which starts at 7am.
