The City Corporation owns and manages London’s three principal Wholesale Food Markets. It provides and maintains the sites and their infrastructure and lets out trading space on long term leases to tenants who trade in the various commodities.
The principal customers are catering suppliers, hotels, restaurants, retail and street markets. Centrally, the work of the Markets is co-ordinated by the Directorate, based in Guildhall, and the whole is part of the wider Department of Markets and Consumer Protection.
