There has been a lot of coverage in the press recently about the redevelopment of parts of Smithfield Market.
For clarification, the buildings that are to be redeveloped are at the western end of the site, between the Poultry Market building and Farringdon Street. These buildings have been unused for many years.
The meat market will continue to operate in the existing three buildings – the Poultry Market and the East and West Market buildings sited between West Poultry Avenue and Lindsey Street. The meat trading tenants recently signed new fifteen year leases with their landlord, the City of London.
The Smithfield Market Tenants’ Association welcomes the long-overdue redevelopment of the near-derelict unused buildings on the edge of the meat market.
MONDAY to FRIDAY from 2am (visitors and buyers should arrive by 7am to find full range of stalls open) Closed on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
