Introducing our Authentic Italian Range

Available now!

Our story


Our story began with three university students from Harpenden who came together to support their local community in a time of great crisis and adversity. When a national Lockdown was introduced in march 2020, our three founders Alfie, Tom and Max were left sitting in their student home in manchester watching supermarket shelves sell out amid the chaos of the pandemic. they wondered if they could make a difference. 

With Alfie’s connection to the catering industry the trio were able to access fine premium produce from every corner of the world. they hired a van from a local manchester based business and set off to New Covent Garden Market in London. Since then, harpenden fruit and veg have delivered to over 1000 homes in the Harpenden and St albans area. We have loved serving every one of you and we are here to stay!

We are supplied by CSR & Sons Ltd – a notable greengrocer based in New Covent Garden Market,  which has been trusted and relied upon to supply many thriving bars and restaurants in London over the last 30 years.

thank you for being a part of our journey.
