London’s markets formed the earliest places of public gathering and of exchange. From Roman times to today markets help shape the commercial and social life of London.

Along with drainage, embankments and railways the infrastructure left to us by the Victorians included some cathedral sized market buildings.


Modern markets create excitement, employment, and space for social interaction along with commercial activity. 
New trends in food and fashion can be experimented with quickly and with low risk, markets are the first rung in the retail ladder.

Eric Reynolds investigates the built form along with social and economic elements that make up the marketplace.
