On Mon 3 April, we opened the doors to our brand new Flower Market at New Covent Garden Market.

The Flower Market has moved just down Nine Elms Lane into a brand new building. If you come from the west, it’s one minute closer. If you come from the east, it’s one minute further.

If you don’t know all the ins and outs of the new Flower Market yet, head over to our guide here. We’ve also put the answers to some frequent questions below.

Opening times

The hours of the market remain the same as now, Monday to Saturday 4am to 10am. Just like now, some of our wholesalers will open earlier and close later to suit their own businesses.

How do I get there?

The Flower Market is moving just down Nine Elms Lane to our old Main Entrance Site. Your new postcode for sat navs will be SW8 5EH.

How does the parking work?

If you have a permit it’ll work just like now and we’ll be switching it to the new Flower Market. There’s nothing else you need to do.

If you usually pay cash, you will now pull a ticket on entering and pay at one of the pay stations before leaving - this is only for those without permits. £5 will give you three hours parking. Longer stays cost more, starting at £25 for 3-4 hours.

Where can I park?

There are two parking floors and you can park on either one, in any space. Large vans can park on the first floor too, as the height allows up to and including a Luton van.

Can I come in my van and/or car?

Yes. You can enter the new Flower Market with both commercial vehicles (vans) and private vehicles (cars).

Can I leave my car/van all day or overnight?

Unfortunately not any more. With your permit, you can take all the time you need to buy in the Flower Market, but you’re not able to leave your car or van for long, extended periods.

How do I find my wholesaler?
