The Central Market, also known as Covent Garden Market, was a market with fruits and vegetables operating in London between 1830 and 1974. Later the market was rehabilitated and reorganized to serve as shopping and entertainment area. Today this place houses a variety of shops, pubs and cafes and is a popular tourist destination.
Close to the Central Market there are two other smaller markets: the Apple Market, which is a craft market, and the Jubilee Market, which on Mondays functions as an antique market, whereas on other days of the week offers clothing, household goods, and curios.
In front of Central Market there is La Piazza, a square that is a popular meeting place and home to many diverse street performers, including acrobats and musicians.
