New Spitalfields Market is Britain's premier horticultural wholesale market. It offers the greatest choice of exotic fruit and vegetables of any market in Europe.

Initially operating under a Royal Charter granted in 1682, Spitalfields Market moved out of the City in 1991 and now occupies a purpose built 31 acre site in Leyton, East London. In recognition for excellence in health and safety and infrastructure transformation, New Spitalfields Market is the recipient of many industry awards.

In 2018, for the second time in a decade, it was awarded the title of “Wholesale Market of the Year” by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) at the Great British Market Awards.
