Closure of Poultry Market
As part of an agreement with our landlords, the City of London, to relocate the Market to Barking and Dagenham, the traders left the Poultry Market building at the end of August this year. The building will become part of the new Museum of London. Smithfield Market contimues to trade from the two remaining Victorian buildings and will continue to do so until at least 2028.
