Last Saturday my husband and I went to Borough Market which is a wholesale and retail food market in Southwalk, Central London. It is an old market which was opened in 1851. It is just located next to London Bridge.
We arrived at the market around 1:15 p.m. It was crowded with lots of people and tourists because it was Saturday afternoon. The market consists of more than 100 food stalls and stands. There is a wide variety of fresh food, like fish, meats, vegetables, cheeses, ciders, chocolates, macaroons, breads, cakes and patisseries. They are good quality, good prices, great selection and amazing tastes.
We absolutely love this foodie heaven; there are too many tempting treats. I especially like the hot food stalls which sell burgers, sandwiches, crepes, coffees and drinks. We wandered around the stalls and had sample tasting loads of foods from chocolates to sausages before finally settling for lunch at a food stall called Le Marché du Quartier. We had duck sandwich and beer. The sandwich is so delicious and stuffed with shredded duck meat. We also bought some cheese and a big bag of very fresh avocados. We had a great time there.
I would recommend having a walk around and let your senses be overwhelmed by the smells and sounds of this lovely market. It is a must for tourists and locals.
