About New Covent Garden Market
Located in Nine Elms, New Covent Garden Market is the UK's largest and finest fresh produce market, with 120 British businesses serving London's hospitality industry and now homes. Unlike supermarkets, the businesses at the market are local, independent and many are family-run, some with heritage reaching back to when the market was located in Covent Garden in Westminster.
The expertise that sits among this collection of British-owned businesses is second to none, and their knowledge of seasonal fruit, veg and fine foods is unrivalled. As well as sourcing from Europe and internationally, the market champions British produce and holds deep, long-term relationships to the UK’s farmers and producers, proudly supporting the UK’s rural economies.

Inspiration's a key part, too. With many of us feeling the fatigue of cooking the same tried-and-tested meals, New Covent Garden Market is looking forward. Its traders, working on the front line of food, have been using their insights to map out contemporary consumer cooking trends.
There's a new interest in exotic fruits, like yuzu limes, mangoes and pomegranates; leafy green veg are experiencing a renaissance; and home cooks are experimenting with sweet-yet-savoury flavours.
The make-up of the traders' boxes are inspired by these findings. So, whether you're looking to go hyper-seasonal or add authenticity to dishes sourced from far and wide, hankering for British-grown radicchio and greens, Amalfi lemons, medjool dates or persimmons, New Covent Garden Market's fresh boxes will make sure you're well catered for.
