Who we are

Covent Garden Market Authority (CGMA) is the team that looks after and manages New Covent Garden Market.

A statutory body, set up by Acts of Parliament in 1961, we own and are responsible for the running of the market. We are accountable to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) but don’t receive any direct government funding.

What we do
We work to give our market community the best possible space, support and help to connect with each other and grow.

We lease space on the market and provide our community with the facilities they need to run their businesses. This includes cleaning, recycling and waste disposal, security, traffic control and the maintenance of buildings and equipment.

We also work to support and promote our tenant businesses. We’re behind the market’s social media, website, campaigns, marketing and promotions. We offer business support and development and we link our community to environment, community and health initiatives.

Contact us

Our offices on the market are open Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 16:00.
