Fruit and Veg – Andy Gardiner and Sons
Andy Gardiner has been a trader at Barnet Market for 30 years. He is one of two fruit and veg traders in the Market offering a wide range of good quality, good value produce. Under certain circumstances, he can arrange to deliver.
Dave and Tyler Bone
Dave and Tyler’s greengrocery stall always attracts a large crowd which often forms into a queue, evidence that the quality and value of the produce is well worth a short wait.
Next to Andy’s stall is the flower stall where you will find Charlie. There is always a lovely display of cut flowers and plants; very good value indeed. They also sell eggs so you can buy fresh farm eggs too.
Lenny’s meats and poultry
Lenny is a farmer who comes from the Chesunt area. He sells a range of poultry, game when in season, and meats of various kinds. He brings a good stock with him, but you can always order in advance for the following week. His home-made sausages, pork or venison, are delicious!
Adi’s fish van
Adi’s fish van is a very welcome presence in the Market, always with a smile on his face. As well as fish, you can buy Cromer crabs and various types of shellfish, all very fresh indeed. The selection of fish changes from week to week, but you are likely to find salmon (smoked and non smoked), tuna, swordfish, plaice, skate, mackerel, to mention but a few.
DoDough Pizza Van
These delicious pizzas are served from a vintage Citroen HY van and are the authentic Roman rectangular type of pizza. The dough is proofed for 48 hours in order to obtain a honey-combed appearance. The van can be found on the bandstand site on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12.00 noon until 9.30 pm. You can order for delivery on 07380 981380.

Then there is an even wider selection of patisserie, such as Madeira cheesecake, chestnut muffins, Portuguese brownie, not to mention the ‘Tong of mother-in-law’.
