The world famous food emporium has an epic cheese, fresh pasta, and delicatessen area.

The Harrods Fresh food hall is filled fruits and vegetables from around the world, all beautifully displayed for the picking.

And then there’s mangoes and dragonfruit, fruits that grow in abundance just a few kilometres from our home!
Find seasonal vegetables including:
- green spring cabbages
- heritage carrots, and
- broccoli bunches too.
The vegetable butcher (!) will even chop or spiralise them for you!
No.3: Harrods Juice Bar
The hardest thing is to choose your juice from the tonnes of different sweet healthy choices.

There are so many different cuts of top class meat here including:

No.5: Seafood & Chicken
In the fish hall, you can buy traditional London Fish and Chips, and there’s seafood, oysters and a Caviar Bar.
Check out the eggs, milk, butter and cream next to the cheese counter.

There’s a Rotisserie, with the most succulent slow-grown tender chicken marinated for 24 hours before it’s cooked. Bet it’s the best you’ve ever tasted!
Did you know you can buy ready to eat roast potatoes and truffle mac’n’cheese too?
No.6: Harrods Roastery & Bake Hall

Grab a fresh sourdough loaf (or one of the other 14 types of bread) to go with your cheese board selections, and go, and tick off a budget Harrods meal from your bucket list.
But the sourdough is the pick of the bunch.
You can even have it personalised with your initials!
The Patisserie is home to cake heaven:
- sweet tarts
- hummingbird cake
- chocolate brownies
