Smithfields is one of a kind, still on its original site and still using porters to carry the meat carcasses. It only sells wholesale, but you can buy smaller cuts of meat from the poultry section. Try to visit in the wee hours, perhaps after a night of clubbing in the area, to get a real feel, not to mention smell, of the place. Afterward, why not visit the historical Fox and Anchor pub, which starts serving at 7a specially for the market workers.
