Nine Elms got its name after ‘Nine Elms Lane’. This road was given its name in the mid 1600’s as the road was lined with a row of elm trees. One of the more prominent areas is ‘New Convent Garden Market’. Situated in Nine Elms, it is the largest wholesale market in the UK selling flowers, fruit and vegetables. Many catering companies and florists visit this market regularly for fresh stock.
