New Covent Garden Market is the largest wholesale fruit, vegetable, and flower market in the United Kingdom. Located in Nine Elms, London, the market covers a site of 57 acres (23 ha) and is home to about 200 fruit, vegetable, and flower companies. The market serves 40% of the fruit and vegetables eaten outside of the home in London and provides ingredients to many of London's top restaurants, hotels, schools, prisons, hospitals, and catering businesses.

The Flower Market, which offers an extensive range of flowers, plants, foliages, sundries and interior decorations from the UK and from around the globe, is visited by 75% of florists in London, many of whom place morning orders and return to restock during the day as needed. The Flower Market wholesalers are open from 04:00 to 10:00 Monday to Saturday and the Fruit & Vegetable Market wholesalers trade from around 00:00 - 06:00 Monday to Saturday.

There is a £5 entry fee for visitors driving to the market. The nearest London Underground station is Vauxhall on the Victoria line. Vauxhall also has a railway station, with good connections to Waterloo and Clapham Junction, and a large bus station with buses departing frequently to destinations all across London. The proposed Nine Elms tube station on the Northern line extension to Battersea will serve the market.

  • Go here!! It's adorable, busy for sure, but very cute. There's tons of shops in the area, including a flea market type street.You can spend as little or as long here as you'd like. There's even an aisle with more craft fair type goods too. It does get busy, all the metro signs about walking from other stations are on point.
  • Expect to pay more for your flowers than any other market. The prices here are high and I felt ripped off. Perhaps it's good for large companies buying 100+ hydrangeas if your not I'd stick to Columbia Rd!
