Covent Garden, London: 167 reviews and 274 photos
For over 300 years, London's main market for fruit and vegetables operated at Covent Garden. Increasing congestion led to its being moved to a new site south of the river in 1974.
When the barrowboys and the vegetables moved out the site was revamped as a modern shopping area
Nowadays the halls where the fruits and vegetables were sold are now used by cafes and stalls that sell a variety of items like clothing and jewelry
