Intratuin provided the expertise required to base the routing and presentation on a Western-European pattern. Once a thriving central London fruit, vegetable and flower market, Covent Garden is now a major retail tourist attraction, offering cafes, pubs, restaurants, small shops and a craft market. Starting life as a small, open air fruit and vegetable market on the south side of the fashionable square around 1654, the area quickly grew in popularity, attracting taverns, theatres, coffee-houses, prostitutes and ne'er do wells. As the area plunged downmarket, the gentry deserted Covent Garden to be replaced by rakes, wits and playwrights. An act of parliament was drawn up to control the area, with the neo-classical market building (above) being erected in 1830 as part of the clean up operation..


Rising traffic levels in the 1960s made the market unsustainable, prompting developers to dredge up some truly horrendous plans to redevelop the site. After a sustained campaign by the Covent Garden Community Association, in 1973 the Home Secretary, Robert Carr, gave dozens of buildings around the square listed building status, preventing redevelopment.
The working market then moved to a new site (called the New Covent Garden Market at Nine Elms), with the the square finally re-opening as a shopping centre and tourist attraction in 1980.

The country has yet to establish a garden centre culture, explains our export manager Ferry Breugem. Come the 18th century, the area had become a well-known red-light district, attracting notable prostitutes such as Betty Careless and Jane Douglas and Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies, a guidebook to the prostitutes and whore houses, became a best seller. But in the past few years many DIY centres and branches of IKEA have been established and they are doing very well.
