While living in London this market has become a weekend shopping trip for my husband and I. We love all the fresh food on offer and the smell of the amazing foods. We stock up on produce, take it back to our apartment and make some awesome meals.
The locals and tourists are all jammed in like sardines in a can, that’s how crowded this place gets. You’ll see people lining up for food all over the place whilst others just wander around eating their food on the go. There are a few other shops around with home wear kind of things, but mostly it’s all about the food at this market.
There are two sections of the market although they both have the same thing on offer…..Food, food and more food! Just ask your nose once you’re there, I’m sure it will let your stomach know you’ve come to the right place.
Eating at Borough Market
Even if you are gluten free vegetarian/vegan don’t worry there is something here on offer for you too. This place behind me makes awesome food! I love their chickpea burger with salad. It’s the perfect way to start my Saturday eating wholesome yummy food.
For all the meat and wheat burger lovers out there (like my husband), I’m sure the selections on offer around the markets will meet your taste buds needs. Follow your nose and enjoy the aroma I’m sure it won’t lead you astray.
Food Shopping at Borough Market
What would you like to buy to take home? There is a little bit of everything here on offer for you. This is the fish shop where we buy our fish and take it home.
There’s so much wonderful cheese on offer which I wish I could still eat but unfortunately, my body says no! However, Hubby still enjoys this place and get his weekly amount of cheese from here. You can then buy some wonder bread to accompany the cheese you just bought. Then you can work your way through the chocolate selections on offer. Oh and I can’t forget all the other wonderful fruits and vegetables that are on offer.
My Overview of Borough Markets in London
I love going to the market it’s such a great experience for me and it reminds me a little of the Adelaide Central Market in Australia, Market of San Miguel In Madrid and the La Boqueria Food Market in Barcelona. Seeing people happy and enjoying food is always a nice experience.
I love that the British are all so polite and courteous making the market an even more enjoyable experience. You will experience a high volume of people on the weekends which like all markets globally is to be expected. If you are into markets and food, then this is a must see on your adventure around London.
