all about greens of highgate, your local greengrocers

Ricky Green has been a Greengrocer since his first job at just 16. He began on a popular market stall in Hampstead (North London) and fell in love with the job and the fresh fruit produce. Not many people could do the early mornings, setting up and packing away outdoors in all weather, but Mr. Green loves it!

After years of searching for the perfect location he was introduced to Michael who had run the shop for over 20 years as a greengrocers and florist and he decided to take the plunge and take over the shop.

 

In May 2016 the shop had a make-over! A re-brand, a new awning, re-decorated, re-stocked and a huge tidy up, and we are working everyday to make the shop better and better, but always remembering it's roots of being traditional and welcoming.

 

Our fruit and flowers are as fresh as possible due to Ricky's visits to the market 6 times a week. We also take personal orders and requests for products and if it’s at the market, we’ll find it!

 

Only 4 months after the take over, we were nominated and shortlisted for a TimeOut Love London Award. Due to the amazing support from our customers we WON the runner up award for Best Shop in Highgate. Thank you!

We are a little independent fruit and vegetable shop based in Highgate,

North London and couldn’t manage without our team of superstars!

Favourite flower: Avalanche Rose.

 

The nations favourite flower and our all year rounder. They transform a bouquet or arrangement beautifully.

 

Favourite fruit & veg:

is a tough one!... I would have to say the Alphonso mango. You can smell the sweetness before it’s cut and at the right time of the year... there’s no better fruit for taste.

Favourite flower:

I LOVE peonies!..

They are my ultimate favourite. The only bug bear , is that they are not available all year round. When they are in season, I often get in trouble for taking too many of them home.

 

Favourite fruit & veg:

Cherries are my favourite fruit… I could eat them by the bucket load.

 

Again not available all round but we have the tastiest cherries when in season.

The 'Veg Man''... he loves his veg and is very fussy about his veg display.

 

Favourite flower:

Hydrangeas

 

Favourite fruit & veg:

Asparagus...

 

'You cant beat an asparagus risotto'

Favourite flower:

It’s so hard to choose a favourite flower when I work with so many. I love black roses. They look so unusual in an arrangement and really give bouquets a wow factor.

 

Favourite fruit & veg:

Favourite veg has to be aubergines.

 

There are 2 recipes I use... slice & fry aubergine and add a tomato and garlic sauce or just add vinegar and oil. Both taste delicious with salad & pitta bread.

Favourite flower:

Tulips are my favourite flowers!

 

Favourite fruit & veg:

I love our Cyprus Potatoes...

I roast them in the oven with olive oil, fresh lemon juice & pepper and serve alongside fish & salad.
