As we have been communicating through social media over the last couple of weeks, due to the Coronavirus and social distance measures, the market is currently open to wholesale customers only.
Leaflets are being handed out to the general public outside the market by our landlord, The Corporation of London. To follow is a summary of the information in the leaflets for those of you who access us online – we repeat, we are asking the general public to please use other places to purchase your fruit and vegetable produce such as:
· Local convenience stores
