New Caledonian Market. Watercolour. General view of the Caledonian Meat Market. The Corporation of London ran the new Metropolitan Cattle Market in Islington. The market was popularly known as the Caledonian Cattle Market after the name of the road that formed one of its boundaries. James Bunning, the City of London's architect, designed the site with a clock tower at the centre and a tavern at each corner. The market could accommodate 7000 cattle and 42,000 sheep at any one time. Market days for cattle, sheep and pigs were Mondays and Thursdays, with horses and goats on Fridays.
