Covid 19 Information
Our markets remain open as part of our commitment to helping you support your local economy and shop for essentials in a safe, outdoor, environment.

Please remember to follow the government advice on social distancing when going outside and visiting your local markets. This includes: stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people; limit contact with other people; travel on foot or by bike if you can; consider all other options before using public transport; wash your hands for 20 seconds on a regular basis; and if you cannot social distance and you’re likely to come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, wearing a face covering is recommended.

The street was completed in 1710 and it is likely that the market dates from then.

In 1877 Adolphe Thompson describes the market as crowded with traders and being between the Seven Dials and Five Dials (now demolished to make way for Shaftesbury Avenue).

In 1892 the market consisted of 41 stalls of which 12 were operated by shopkeepers and the remainder by independent street traders. The market was greatly diminished from its former size. Perlmutter records the market having 22 pitches in 1983 but that they were largely unoccupied. He lists fresh seafood, antiques, and vintage records for sale. In the mid-1990s the market is described as consisting of 12 stalls selling army surplus, clothing new and second hand, wooden toys, and recorded music.
