Seasonality

Our purchasing team have a wide network of growers across the world, to ensure that our customers have access to the freshest ingredients throughout the year.

We believe passionately that fruit and vegetables are fresher, tastier and more nutritious when in season. Every fruit and vegetable has its own season from spring cabbage, cherries in the summer and sprouts in winter.

Our Roots

City Fresh is very much a family run business with over 30 years experience. We deliver and supply fresh high quality produce to the North of England and beyond.

City fresh was established over 30 years ago by Mark Cook.Mark established a retail business which offered the highest quality produce at the right price. As time went by Mark realised there was a gap in the market to offer the best produce not only to the public but also to restaurants. Over the years City Fresh grew and grew into its own purpose built facility. Over time the market changed and Mark felt that the business shouldn't stand still and he decided the way forward was to offer the full range of food to catering kitchens.
