London has hundreds of markets, from the world-famous Camden and Borough Market to Leather Lane Market and Spitalfields. But among the tourist favourites, there are a few that are less known and are arguably better than the more popular destinations.
This includes the New Covent Garden Market which has recently gained mass popularity after going viral on the social media platform TikTok.

Inside London's 4am flower market
New Covent Garden is open to all but is typically used for wholesalers and retailers to get cheap deals on large orders.
But great value products come at a price, as you'll need to get up bright and early to grab the bargains with the market open from 4am until 10am Monday to Saturday.
However, getting up in the early hours is worth it, with fewer crowds than in more popular markets like Columbia Road which tend to leave most with a headache.
