Today, Thursday 14th February, TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall officially reopened the historic Three Crown Square market hall.
The Royal couple enjoyed a walk around the newly restored market space, meeting some of the Market's traders and being shown the fresh produce on offer. They then went on to enjoy a cup of tea at Maria’s Market Café.
A blessing of the Market by the Right Revd. Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark, followed; before the Prince rang the newly installed Market Bell to signify the start of the trading day and officially open the market, a tradition that dates back to the Market’s origins in the 1750’s.
