About J. Carmichael & Co.

In the last 60 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 and the North of England.

The business 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.

Why not come and take a look for yourself – we are open 12 midnight to 12 noon and you can find us at Block A, Stand 13, Fruit Market, Blochairn Road, Glasgow. View map & directions
