Normally closed on Sundays, Borough Market is going to be open for a few hours each week, for the first time in modern times.

Sunday trading, which will run from 10am – 2pm, will give customers the opportunity to stock up on ingredients from more than 30 of their produce shops and stalls.

Borough Market was traditionally a wholesale market, but the rise of supermarkets caused it to reinvent itself as a consumer market and street food outlet in 1998. It has remained closed on Sundays ever since though.

The market’s managing director Darren Henaghan 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.”

Note that it’s going to be selling groceries only, and the street food will not be available.

Sunday opening starts from Sunday 27th June.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Great news, but it opens too early considering that most people, after a Saturday night, are not so keen to be already up and go there at that time.
    Maybe a start at 12 (midday) until 4pm it is much better and it also means greater business for the street market as the crowd intensifies more after 2pm

    Sunday trading laws allow all stores to open on Sundays, and if there are any markets that can’t but want to are probably government by an ancient charter forbidding it.
