Borough Market, Paradise for food lovers
Borough Market has long been synonymous with food markets and as far back as the 11th century, London Bridge attracted traders selling grain, fish, vegetables, and livestock. In the 13th century, traders were relocated to what is now Borough High Street and a market have existed there ever since.
”Simply said is the best food market in England”
It`s a wonderful place to taste home made street food.
It’s the busiest too, occupying a site near London Bridge.Gourmet goodies,directly from the producers, organic products, delicatessen, cheese, wines, meats, game, fruit, and veg, to cakes and all sort of preserves oils and coffee. Look around – the Market sells some expensive delicacies but there are also lots of delicious affordable value seasonal food. There`s plenty of free samples all around the market,so give yourself same time and enjoy the amazing atmosphere, and of course taste as much as you can! There’s a delicious green curry and paella stall, located in the very of the market, they offer samples, worth a try. You can also check it out for workshops and food demonstrations.
History, culture, food and flavors – under the same roof.
My favorites: De Calabria,The French Comte, Greedy Goat, Neal`s Yard Dairy, Une Normande A Londres, Richard Haward’s Oysters, The Exotic Meat Company, The Ginger Pig, Gourmet Goat, Wright Brothers Oyster & Porter House. Usually, we finish at Monmouth Coffee Company wich for me is the best coffee in town, they have a range of coffee from all over the world just choose and they`ll grind fresh. Don’t miss the Swiss stall – ‘Kappacasein’, definitely my favorite, as I’m a cheese lover they serve the best cheese sandwich ever!! And of course the traditional cheese raclette. A good tip is, if you have a chance to visit the market more often is going to the XXX and buy a bottle of house wine for £8 ( the bottle itself cost £5) and every time you top up you will only pay for the wine which will cost you only £5, comparing to an average of £3 a glass of wine around the market, is value for money, and more than that you can enjoy and share with your friends when tasting around.
