COVENT GARDEN MARKET: Taste the Market Experience

Written by Local Flavour

Eat local in the heart of London! Covent Garden Market is located downtown at the junction of King and Talbot Streets. A strong attraction for locals and out-of-town guests alike, this is one of the city’s most venerated cultural landmarks and the heart and soul of the downtown area.

Traditions Old and New

Gourmet, artisanal and wholesome, farm-fresh quality can be found daily. The Market provides some of the city’s best selection of organic foods, award-winning meats (Chris’ Country Cuts and Mark’s Fine Meats), ethnic foods from around the globe (over 40 vendors) and the largest assortment of cheese (thanks to Glenda Smith) in Southwest Ontario. Don’t miss the authentic French Bakery offering the real French experience through a range of classic and regional baked goods by Pastry Culture. You can also find chocolatiers, market-roasted coffees and a wide selection of seasonal fresh-cut flowers. You’ll be amazed by the variety of ethnic, gourmet and specialty foods you can purchase, showcasing the multicultural diversity of our market community.
