New Spitalfields Market in Leyton London is Britain's premier wholesale fruit, vegetable and flower market serving London and the Home Counties. The Market designed for business with excellent trading facilities is second to none. Since relocating from its old congested site trading on public roadways to its new purpose built complex in 1991 New Spitalfields Market can today justifiably claim to be the largest revenue earning fresh fruit vegetable and flower wholesale market in the UK. Sited with direct access to the motorway network, the ports and the airports, New Spitalfields wholesale fruit vegetable and flower market is well placed not only to serve north and east London but south east London, the Midlands, East Anglia and Kent. In fact, the whole of England and the near continent of Europe.
New Spitalfields Market the number one wholesale market in the UK, offers the widest range of exotic fresh fruit and vegetables sourced from all over the world, to meet the needs of a cosmopolitan London and beyond. In turn there has been an increasing number of ethnic traders. Today the market has over 60% traders sourcing Asian, Afro-Caribbean, Turkish, Chinese, Egyptian, fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers. The evolution and mixture of tenants, particularly those specialising in exotic fruits and vegetables has been a welcomed development which has contributed to make New Spitalfields Market, the market for success.
"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."
