Fresh Food: Fruit & Vegetables

Fresh Food: Fruit & Vegetables

At the heart of the Fresh Market Hall are vibrant, varied and in-season fruit and vegetables; from candy and yellow beetroot to blue-skinned squashes – plus exotic fruit spanning custard apples and prickly pears, Buddha’s hand and rambutans.

And while there are butchers to talk us through cuts of meat, and fishmongers to advise on fillets of fish, there are fewer culinary professionals who specialise in cooking the season’s most vibrant produce. Thanks to our vegetable butchery, however, such practical advice is now on hand.

  • Vegetable Butchery

    Spiralise, slice or chop. Chiffonade, julienne or brunoise. There are more than a dozen different techniques for preparing fruit and vegetables, but mastering them is a different art altogether. Look to the vegetable butchers in the Fresh Market Hall for everything from on-the-spot food preparation to advice on what's seasonal and food pairings.

Inside The Fresh Market Hall

  • Truffle Hunting

    The Fresh Market Hall boasts the freshest range of truffles including white, black, summer and bianchetti varieties, all sourced directly from Urbani Tartufi in Italy.

    Urbani Tartufi sells 200 tonnes of truffles every year, of which only about 10 per cent are tuber magnatum pico, the white diamonds that are hunted every autumn by specially trained dogs in the woodlands of the Langhe. As the trifolau – truffle hunters – cajole and whistle, the dogs flit from tree to tree, sniffing and pawing the ground until they strike culinary gold. Cleaned with a damp brush and air-dried, making them ready to grate, these white truffles can be snapped up in the Fresh Market Hall.

  • "Truffles should just be warmed to release their amazing aroma; never cooked."
    Giorgio Federici, Urbani Tartufi
