Citrus is another highlight. The picture below shows Seville oranges from Spain and blood oranges (Moro variety; find out more here) from Sicily.
Seville oranges are distinguished by their knobbly skin, irregular colouring and thick pith.
Other citrus on hand include clementines, leafy lemons, cedro, bergamot and gorgeous Navel oranges from Spain and Italy.
Other on-form fruits include pomegrates and lychees - see these whoppers for sale at H G Walker. English apples and pears are also still eating well.
Stone fruit (apricots, plums, nectarines) are here from South Africa - some are still rather hard, so try before you buy.
Back on the British front, this is a fine month for brassicas such as kales, kohlrabi and cabbages - including the January King (pictured below).
Roots are also a good call: turnips, swedes, celeriac, parsnips, carrots (including Chantenay) and Jerusalem artichokes.
If you crave an early taste of spring, then imports such as these broad beans from Southern Italy are available at a price.
Other ingredients from the Continent include romanesco, artichokes, aubergines, leafy celery, smoked garlic, Roscoff onions, squashes and more. This variety of pepper below is called 'Corno' (horn).
It's a great time for chillies - see the medley of varieties below.
The type below is from wholesaler Worldwide Exotics - a mild pepper called Tinker Bell.
Before I go, here's a moody image on my walk out of the market. See you next month.
