The Leadenhall Market was established in the 14th century around a manor house with a lead roof. It became one of the best places in London to buy meat, game, poultry and fish. In 1666 the market was destroyed in the Fire of London. Over the next few years new buildings were erected on the old site. It is open from 7 in the morning until late Monday to Friday, and sells fresh food. Among the vendors there are cheesemongers, butchers and florists.
