The buying experience:

Anyone can visit the market to purchase products from the traders, here are some helpful tips on how to get the best out of your visit.

  • Have a good look around the trading halls to see what's available.
  • Chat to the traders, ask them questions and get a feel for the quality of the goods and compare prices.
  • Costs - Wholesale Markets don't advertise prices like high street shops. Ask about prices and discounts for large orders and don't be afraid to haggle, it's half the fun! 
  • Place your order and pay for the goods.
  • Payment - all the stalls take cash, some take credit cards and regular trade customers can ask about credit accounts.
  • The porters will then put together you order and either load your goods onto your vehicle for you or you can arrange to have you goods delivered. 


 There is ample free parking at New Smithfield Market.
