    Any time I'm have a big cooking project, I come to the Kentish Town Fruit Bowl, as I am really in love of a) their selection of fruits & vegetables, b) the quality of their produce, and c) the very reasonable price they charge you for it (I didn't want to use the word "cheap" as that might give a false impression, but really, that's what it is!)

    There's always the same lady wearing a range of different heads throughout the year (I especially like the straw-hat in the summer time) - she's not the most chatty person, but she's super fast at her calculations and any supermarket-cashier could learn a great deal from her!

    'Get your 5-a-day.' 'Eat your greens.' 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away.' Ok, ok I get the message. Eating fruit and veg is good for you. This we all know, but where to get fairly priced goods is a little less known. Supermarket prices fluctuate like a rubber duck in the Pacific Ocean. This is not good. One week I buy my blackberries for £1.50, a week later they are £3.50. No, no, no!

    For realistic prices and that joyous feeling of knowing you are putting your money in a real persons pocket and not simply a corporation, buy your F's & V's from Kentish Town Fruit Bowl.

    KT Fruit Bowls prices are pretty constant and without fail always cheaper than a supermarket. They sell an excellent array of berries, all your generic fruits and a great selection of veg. In truth you really cannot go wrong.

    It is pretty much what it says on the tin: a fruit shop. A cheap, tasty fruit shop, conveniently right by the tube station, where one can get a bowl of mixed fruit for £1. You wouldn't expect the selection to be as wide as it is, either - exotic fruit in Kentish Town? Apparently so, and not for the ludicrous prices you'd pay for lychees pretty much anywhere else in London.

    There isn't a whole lot you can say about it, really: 'cheap and tasty fresh fruit' pretty much covers it.

    The fruit is old and off. I brought some apples there and they were rotted through. Ok, maybe it was a one off I thought, and tried them again. However the fruit I brought the second time was tasteless and again a few were bad when cut open. The sales people there are always miserable and dour and act like they are doing you a favour by bothering to serve you. Perhaps being right on top of an underground station and opposite a train line is not a recipe for fresh fruit?

    The beautiful girl working here obviously considered handling plums preferable to a career in international modelling. Either that, or she has a peculiar relationship with her colleague, a matron of indeterminate age and a startling collection of inappropriate hats. That aside, this offers a wide selection of good quality fruit and veg. It's also self-service, invaluable when weeding out the hairy carrot, black banana, or liquefied grape. Recommended.

    The people working there are incredibly rude, the man is a vicious thug, they make their prices up as they go along and the produce they sell is half rotten. I would never buy from Kentish Town Fruit Bowl.
