Shoppers and traders in London will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Smithfield Market.
For more than 800 years a market has existed on the site in some form. It closed in 1855, but was rebuilt and opened on 24 November 1868.
The Museum of London is running a series of events to mark the anniversary of its reopening.
Museum director Sharon Ament said: "It was the epicentre of market trading in London.
People came "from miles around to buy and sell their produce," she added.
'So much fun'
Greg Lawrence, who has worked as a market trader at Smithfield since 1966 said he is "incredibly proud" to work somewhere with such a rich history.
"There has been a meat market on this site for a thousand years and Smithfield Market is here by Royal Charter - so we can't be moved.
"I've only ever worked here and I'm so proud of it. Everyday is just a laugh. We have so much fun."
