London's Markets : From Smithfield to Portobello Road
London is a City of Markets: markets in meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, money, insurance, shipping and, occasionally, in stolen goods. Stephen Halliday's book is a comprehensive account of the often lurid and controversial history of its markets from Roman Londinium to the London of Boris Johnson as well as a guide to visiting them (and emerging with a bargain).
