Neal's Yard is a small alley in London's Covent Garden between Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street which opens into a courtyard. It is named after the 17th century developer, Thomas Neale.
In 1976 alternative activist and entrepreneur Nicholas Saunders started the bulk Whole Food Warehouse; he had bought the Nr. 2 of the derelict Neal's Yard, a warehouse for the nearby Covent Garden fruit and veg market, for £7,000 a few years earlier. From this success grew various other enterprises in other buildings such as Neal's Yard Coffee House, Neal's Yard Bakery, Neal's Yard Dairy and the Neal's Yard Apothecary.
