The Board of Trade has been a landmark for over 100 years. Founded in 1856, they traded mostly grains; wheat to begin with. It is now a hub for many food items and partially processed foods. It has made many people wealthy, and your food costs are driven by that wealth sector taking a piece of the action before you get to it.
