The Birmingham Wholesale Market is the UK’s largest fully integrated market, offering Horticultural, Fish, Meat and Poultry and Flowers. The old Birmingham Wholesale Market originally in the Centre of Birmingham in Digbeth finally closed its doors on the 5th of May 2018 and opened up at the new site in Aston, Birmingham, on 8th May 2018.
