Outside Smithfield market at about 21:30, London, November 2022
Around 9 p.m. the lorries arrive loaded with produce for sale at the market later that night. The market actually opens at midnight, so the cutting and preparation staff have a few hours to do their work, before the customers turn up, many of who are restaurants coming straight in to buy for the next evening after closing that night. After a busy night, the market closes around 7 a.m.
