Romford Market is a large open market with 270 stalls,[1][2] located in Romford, London Borough of Havering, Greater London, England. The market is open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm (5 pm on Saturdays).[2]

History[edit]

The market originated as a sheep market in 1247.[3] Under the Royal Charter of the Liberty of Havering, granted by King Henry III no other market is permitted to set up within a day's sheep drive (six and two-thirds miles) of Romford. The market is the subject of a 1726 legal case called Keech v. Sandford.[4] This is one of the foundational cases of English trust law, on the fiduciary duty of loyalty. The market was also used to film parts of The Prodigy's music video for the track "Voodoo People" remixed by Pendulum, and also a film starring Chris Kamara.

Transport[edit]

The market is a hub on the London Bus network with services to Canning Town, Leytonstone, Stratford, Rainham, Dagenham, Barkingside, Cranham, Barking, Ilford and Central London.[5]

Future[edit]

As of 2007, Havering London Borough Council have plans to redevelop the market, change the layout and offer a more diverse range of goods.[6]
