Well Street was once part of an old country lane from the 1850s stretching from Shoreditch to Homerton and the banks of the river Lea.

An early trader at this market went on to become a founder of one of Britain's most successful businesses. Tesco was founded by 21 year old Jack Cohen who started trading from a barrow in Well Street Market in 1919 alongside dozens of other stalls.
