The FPJ, which was called The Fruit, Flower & Vegetable Trades’ Journal when it first appeared in the 1890s, is one of the world’s oldest fresh produce trade magazines. It started out at Covent Garden and moved with the market to New Covent Garden in 1974, to an office in Market Towers.
For the last few years, the business has called Wandsworth Road its home, still a stone’s throw from the Market. “We’re so happy to be back on the Market, particularly at this very exciting time in New Covent Garden’s history with all the redevelopments going on here at Nine Elms,” said managing director Chris White. “We’re really proud of our links to fresh produce wholesaling in the UK. They go back to our very first issue more than 125 years ago.”
The picture above shows the latest coverage of events at the market on FPJ's online outlet - fruitnet.com. FPJ is now a monthly magazine available in print and digital, with updates pushed out daily to your smartphone and tablet via an app available free from Apple’s App Store and from Google Play.
