Review – Greenwich Market

grenprem

Greenwich historic market was originally assigned to the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital in 1700. Originally housed next to West Gate of the Old Royal Naval College, it began to spread into the neighbouring area in the 1800’s. As part of a drive to clean up the market it was moved to its current position.

In 19th century the market traders generally sold live and dead meat, fish, eggs, butter, poultry, fruit and vegetables.

In 1905 the market bye-laws were changed to enable trading six days a week with the exemption of Sundays, Christmas day and bank holidays.
After World War II the wholesale fruit, veg, meat and fish stalls of Greenwich Market went through a gradual period of decline until the 1980s.

The 1980s saw a revival in the fortunes of Greenwich Market when it was decided to concentrate on arts and crafts. This decision was proven to be a sensible one with the market developing and expanding over recent years.
