New Spitalfields Market is Britain's premier wholesale fruit, vegetable and flower market. The market is a purpose-built site, in Leyton, East London, which opened in 1991. It is the largest revenue-earning fresh produce and flower market in the UK.

The market's location provides direct and easy access to the motorway network, and all nearby ports and airports, enabling more than 100 companies to offer a range of healthy and nutritious fresh produce and flowers to their customers, sourced year-round from every corner of the world.

These highly specialised firms predominantly serve customers across London and the Home Counties and our site is ideally placed to serve the rest of the UK and continental Europe too.

The wide mix of cultural and ethnic backgrounds within the New Spitalfields Market trading community ensures that we have a basket of fresh produce and flowers that satisfies the culinary preferences of all cultures. 

The depth and flavour of the New Spitalfields offer has been enriched by the presence of tenants specialising in exotic fruits and vegetables, as well as catering and foodservice firms serving public and private sector customers across London. 

There is no more diverse market in the country and that fact contributes hugely to the market's ability to stay at the forefront of its trade and service the rapidly changing needs of the 21st century wholesale market customer base.

National Fruit Show 2015

We again took our very popular pop up stand to the National Fruit Show 2015. This event is always well attended by the growers that supply the market with British apples, Pears, Plums, Cherries and soft fruits and it was good to catch up with old friends.

Jan, Chris Robert helped man the stand, we were again supported by Donovans who kindly supplied beautiful long stem roses to send away with visitors as mementos of their day at the show.

‘Attending key trade shows such as the National Fruit Show is important to raise awareness of the Market’ commented Jan Hutchinson, Chief Exec of the Tenants Association ‘it’s good to remind people of the amazing quality that we are proud to present at the market’.


London produce show 2015

The second London Produce Show was a fantastic success, New Spitalfields took its place alongside all the major importers, produce brands and Food service companies to engage with retail representatives from around the world.

Held at the Grosvenor House hotel each year the show aims to link buyers from around the world with the stars of the global produce industry; it is a buyers fair and there was a lot of trading on the conference floor.

We caught up with a large number of our international suppliers and met a few new ones working hard to promote the opportunities to businesses in trading with our tenants. London Produce Show Website


NABMA market of the year

"This is one of the most hotly contested categories in Market of the Year and one where the judges would have been delighted to make an award to each of the entries. Ultimately the judging panel made the award to one of our iconic wholesale markets which is the largest in the UK and continues to offer local employment, a vibrant culture and has seen great improvements in waste management performance. The market has coped wonderfully well with the impact of the Olympics and continues to serve London and the rest of the country. The Best Wholesale Market 2013 is New Spitalfields, London."
