Farringdon Road, EC1A 9PS
The thing to remember is that anyone can buy produce or products in the market, but here are a few handy tips:
To see the market at its best and find the full range of stalls open, arrive before 7am.
Look and see - have a good walk round the market before buying anything.
Ask questions - any of the businesses will be happy to answer any queries.
Get to know the salesmen - especially if you are going to be buying regularly.
Cost - prices are not normally displayed in a wholesale market, so always ask: Smithfield is a ‘proper' market so shop around for the best price of the day.
Payment - all the stalls take cash, some take credit cards and regular trade customers can ask about credit accounts.
