Visitors can find out about job opportunities on the market while they enjoy the displays
New Covent Garden Market is celebrating King Charles III’s Coronation with vegetable and flower installations for the public to enjoy.
Over the Coronation weekend, if you walk along Merchants Way – the public thoroughfare that connects Nine Elms Tube Station with the US Embassy Quarter and passes through New Covent Garden Market – you will find two installations created by floral designer Sophie Hanna.
Each installation, in two separate alcoves on Merchants Way, features three crowns adorned with sustainably sourced products from NCGM’s Fruit and Vegetable and Flower Markets.
One alcove has been decorated with seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables, sourced from all corners of the globe, while the other is adorned with fresh and faux flowers and plants – all from the UK’s largest horticultural wholesale market, which has been part of its local community for 49 years.
In recognition of the beliefs and principles of His Majesty King Charles III and Queen Camilla, the products used are fairly and sustainably sourced.
NCGM press officer Tommy Leighton said: “The whole of New Covent Garden Market is celebrating the Coronation. We’re a patriotic bunch and we’d love to meet as many of you as possible on Merchants Way during the few days that Sophie’s amazing installations are on display.”
He encouraged people to come and see the displays, adding that at selected times it will be possible to meet people who work for the market’s landlord, Covent Garden Market Authority, and find out about job opportunities on the market.
