Chair of trustees of Borough Market, Donald Hyslop, said: “Come here today, come here at the weekend, come here when you can, it’s your market.
“Strong and together, London is open. Borough Market is open.”
“We were really keen to get back as soon as we could to trading because its their people’s livelihoods.
“But we also need to respect and remember people who were affected by what happened here.”
Eight people were killed in the attack which happened around 10am on Saturday June 3.
