Borough Market will start opening on Sundays for the first time in its modern history at the end of the month.
The popular food market by London Bridge station has normally been open from Monday-Saturday. It will open on Sunday for the first time on June 27. Sunday hours will be shorter than usual, with stalls open from 10am-2pm.
Market managers aim to help shoppers have more choice over when they visit. Market stalls selling ready made street food will not be open on Sundays.
Darren Henaghan, managing director of Borough Market, said: “Extending our trading from six to seven days per week is a historic move for Borough Market. We wanted to give our customers more choice on when to visit us and for Sunday opening, we’re returning to our roots.
“Back in 1998 we reinvented ourselves from a wholesale centre to a retail market for high quality food and we want to recapture that atmosphere – expert traders and producers providing advice and sharing stories with shoppers who love food.
“From picking up the perfect joint for a Sunday roast complete with all the seasonal veg, to discovering something new for the cheeseboard along with freshly baked bread and wine to accompany, we love Sundays and hope our visitors will too!”
The market has stayed open throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns.
