Night workers at the UK’s largest wholesale market have told of how their work is the “heart and lungs” for providing fruit and vegetables to London.
More than 2,000 night workers at New Covent Garden Market in Nine Elms serve everyone from Michelin-starred chefs to prison kitchens, producing an annual turnover of £650m.
“If you live in London and you dine out, you will have come across our produce,” market trader Vernon Mascarenhas said.
