THE Verulam Town Board resolved to establish 12 stalls for fresh produce grown by freed indentured Indians in Verulam at the Market Square alongside the new railway station in December 10, 1884.
On September 9, 1919, four covered stands were erected and offered for tenancy at the rate of 30 shillings a year. Indians were also permitted to sell their market produce in an open area on Wednesdays only at the north of Market Square in December 1922.

In 1947, local residents owned stalls in the Indian Market and ran a stall for live chickens.
