Chapel Market, Islington, 1894. In Victorian times there were no big supermarkets like today. Instead there were lots of smaller shops, all selling different types of food. Grocers’ shops for instance, sold dried goods such as tea, coffee, sugar and rice; butchers’ shops sold meat; and dairy shops sold milk, cream, butter, eggs and cheese.
