All festive favourites are plentiful - including holly for decoration. I grabbed a sprig to take on my travels.
Purple sprouts are here; whole sprout stalks are almost too good to eat. (Want to meet a leading sprout grower? See our profile of David and Steve Cook up in Merseyside).
Sprout tops are a winner - cheap, on-trend and very healthy, too.
For something more unusual, how about kalettes? A cross between a Brussels sprout and kale.
For British veg, you'll find leeks, carrots, spuds, onions, swedes, turnips, parsnips, kales (more info here), beets, Rainbow chard, cauliflowers and lovely Romanesco.
Cabbages of all kinds are on hand. Savoy is a definite highlight. January King has arrived for its short season.
Here's a flash to give you a sense of what's on offer.
Christmas menus often call for dainty veg to decorate the plate. Rainbow Chantenay carrots are always popular, along with the diminutive Piccolo parsnips.
Continental specialties include aubergines, puntarella, radicchios, courgettes, peppers, crosnes (pictured below; a.k.a Chinese artichokes) and winter tomato varieties such as Costaluto.
Lychees are an essential for December.
Citrus of all kinds is in its prime: leafy clems, Navel oranges, bergamot, cedro and more. This image also shows the humungous Sicilian pomegranates, part of the Italian range at European Salad Company.
Quince is typically French or Turkish. Lovely baked or poached.
Fruit from the southern hemisphere, especially South America, includes pineapples, mangoes and figs.
There are plenty of nuts on the market, including terrific chestnuts, walnuts and bags of mixed nuts. Dates and dried figs also available - try wholesaler H G Walker.
It's not a great time for berries. This pallet of blackberries was over at French Garden, but strawberries tend to be dull in flavour. Blueberries and raspberries are probably your best bet.
Wild mushrooms include Trompette, Chanterelle and Cep. Leading wholesalers are The Mushroom Man and Bruce White.
This image gives you a sense of the scale of operations here on the market. December is always a crazy busy month - this gives the place a lovely buzz. See you in 2019.
