Markets around the world

London is a multicultural city – people coming from all over the world to live here. Markets are wonderful places for people to meet, discuss, exchange, buy and sell food, clothes etc. Below are some examples of markets from around the world that operate rather differently from markets in London, yet that could be of a huge inspiration for our markets here.
