|By late morning it would all be over and much of
the produce would be gone. Many of the market traders would be
seen cleaning up and the market floor would slowly empty.
the trading area was a large balcony on which could be found the
offices that were used by some of the traders. All kinds of
traditional vegetables and sometimes exotic fruit would be
ordered from here.
The market was the main wholesale
distributing centre for the retail trade for many miles around.
The wholesaler's contacts would have extended to almost every
part of the British Isles.
A considerable amount of the business
carried out here was in cut flowers and plants.
