Ensuring a safe visit
We’re a busy commercial site and it’s important you’re aware of your safety at all times. We don’t allow under 16 or dogs (apart assistance dogs) on the market.

The market is busiest overnight, when there are lots of fork lift trucks and delivery vehicles moving around, so take extra care in the dark.

If you’re on foot, please keep to the pedestrian walkways marked up with a yellow man.

The market might seem like its own world, but the laws of the land still apply. In this case the Road Traffic Act. Please keep to the speed limit of 20mph and watch out for fork lift trucks and pedestrians.

Early mornings aren’t always easy. We get that. Good thing there’s a few cafes dotted around the market to keep you going. We have two cafés and a convenience store with post office in the Fruit and Vegetable Market, and a third café in the Flower Market. Red or brown sauce?
