This covered market was built to house the Corporation Wholesale Markets and is still in use for the same purpose today, transforming the surrounding area with activity early each morning. The original design was by City Engineer Parke Neville, carried out after Neville’s death by his successor, Spencer Harty. The roof spans east to west in gabled ranges, in structural ironwork with north-light glazing, and the facades are mostly in red brick, with yellow brick lining the arches providing contrast in patterned blocks. On the exterior, the charming terracotta label stops between arches each depict a different fish, fruit, or vegetable.
