Are you a gastronomic bargain hunters, irrepressibly peckish or a food lover in general? Then you need to make a pilgrimage to Borough Market. Since its establishment in 1756, it is one of the largest and oldest wholesale and retail food market in London. it’s popularity continues to grow and is often packed with amateur cooks, chefs and gluttons who loves their food!
Walking distance from Tate Modern, this large market is a key component of Southwark with over 100 stalls selling a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, seafood, meat, cheese, olives, spices, condiments and various baked goodies like brownies, cakes and bread.
As we went during lunch time, we were shoulder to shoulder with other visitors at certain sections of the market. But this was easily ignored because it had such a lively atmosphere with friendly traders/stall owners that offered free samples while they passionately talked about their product. We happily ate our way around the market and fell in love with the top quality bakeries that served warm bread, divine fruit tarts and moreish hazelnut and chocolate doughnuts!
One of the best markets I have ever been to and I can not recommend it more! It’s moments like these that I wished I live in London!
