Ever wonder where the fabulous fruit and veg found in your favourite London restaurants come from? Wonder no more! Growing Underground co-founder, Steven finds out for you on one of his regular drop offs of our delicious microgreens to New Covent Garden Wholesale Market, at a time when most of us are safety tucked up in bed ?…

2am and Steven meets a sight that would wake anyone up with a slap in the face, this luscious bed of bright red, green, yellow, orange and black tomatoes!
