Queen's Market

Queen's Market, also known as Queen's Road Market, and Green Street Market, is an historic street market in the London Borough of Newham. It lies adjacent to Green Street and Upton Park tube station.

The street market originated in Green Street at the boundary between East Ham and West Ham in the late Victorian era when the new suburb of East Ham began to be developed. Originally the stall holders were Jewish traders from Whitechapel and the East End, selling clothing and vegetables. The traders were pushed into Queens Road in 1904 to stop them obstructing the main road and to allow for the passage of trams. It was not until 1925 that the borough obtained statutory powers to regulate street markets.
