Enjoying the sights and sounds of Borough Market, London

Borough Market is one of the largest food markets in London and sells a large variety of foods from all over the world.

We spent a few enjoyable hours there in early Feb 2012, soaking in all the sights and sounds of this fantastic place (plus taking a few photos and tasting various delicious foods).

The covered market is situated in Southwark, just south of the river from London Bridge, and is renowned as a particularly fashionable place to go shopping for your food.

It’s easy to realise why it’s so popular once you’ve visited and seen the huge variety of amazing stalls, delicious food and heavenly smells. It really is a definite ‘must see’ place.

Everywhere you turn there are stalls providing fresh cooked food

A great review from www.yelp.co.uk/biz/borough-market-london-2:

Go hungry. You’ll want to eat your way through this market. There is food everywhere you turn. Pallea, fish and chips, cheese, baked goods, fruit and vegetables, sandwiches (ranging from beef to ostrich to lamb) and drinks (fruit shakes to Pimms and lemonade)….the list just goes on. Rain or shine, this market is packed. Bring cash, few vendors accept credit cards. Be prepare to rub elbows and eat standing, while being bumped.  Farmers and vendors providing some of the finest in London….you can’t get any better. Give yourself two hours, wear closed toe shoes, and bring your camera. MUST SEE!
