A little bit about J.Carmichael & Co. Ltd.
For over 80 years, J Carmichael & Co. Ltd. has grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent exotic fruit and vegetable wholesalers, serving clients all over Scotland.
We started in 1937 selling fruit and vegetables from the Glasgow Fruit Market in what we now know as the Merchant City. Our range of vegetables was more limited and the fruit less exotic in the early days. But throughout the 50s and 60s we sourced tropical and exotic fruit direct from the ships on the Broomielaw, delivering straight to pubs, restaurants and hotels across the city.
In the 70s the company moved out to the new Glasgow Fruit Market in Blochairn Road where we trade to this day. We supply anything from mangos, kumquats and pineapples to artichokes, jalapeno chillies and butternut squash, infact you could call us a ‘ONE STOP SHOP‘ for all your Fruit and Vegetable supply needs!
We are proud to supply many leading Scottish Wholesalers, Catering Suppliers, Fruit Shops, Oriental wholesale, cash and carrys, home delivery fruit & vegetable suppliers and lots more.
Why not come and take a look for yourself – we are open from 2am to 10:30am Monday to friday and Saturday mornings from 6am till 8.30am. You can find us at Block A, Stand 12 & 13, Fruit Market, Blochairn Road, Glasgow.
