We are busy promoting our market and enjoying learning why our wholesalers are passionate about British produce and the growers behind them.
For example, take Paul Harwood, of Harwoods of London Ltd and his sons, James, Gareth and Joshua. A home grown British business, celebrating an innovative farmer they are passionate about Morghew Park, The Potato Shop, Kent.

We will continue to share daily stories, including our exciting partnership with Covent Garden, Westminster.
As part of this year’s celebrations, New Covent Garden Market and Covent Garden have joined together for the first time since the capital’s iconic fruit and vegetable market at Covent Garden moved to its new location in Nine Elms Battersea, becoming New Covent Garden Market.
From Saturday 19th September to Saturday 4th October, favourite Covent Garden restaurants including Frenchie, The Gentlemen Baristas, Din Tai Fung, Petersham Nurseries’ La Goccia, Avobar, The Oystermen, Ladurée and Mariage Frères are joining the celebrations, creating exclusive menus and dishes to showcase their ongoing passion and support for British produce.

We encourage our nation to celebrate and enjoy delicious British fresh produce, food and drink over the fortnight and beyond.
