With more than 100 stalls filled with the best of British produce, Borough Market in the heart of the city is a must visit for a London food market lover.

It’s a rabbit warren of passageways joined which means you need to explore carefully, otherwise, you might miss the peat-smoked scallops or freshly picked raspberries.

You’ll find it between Southwark Street and Borough High Street, south of Southwark Cathedral, not far from the southern end of London Bridge.

Take a walk around the market with me in this video.

Full of history

This is a market full of history, dating from the 13th century, although the market’s blurb claims it existed way back in 1014. No one alive that we can fact check that date!

There’s plenty of seasonal fruit and veg and other produce such as cheeses from around the world, freshly caught fish and the best British beef.

Delicious Borough Market flavours

Hawkers tempt you to their stalls with tastes and delicious aromas, but your eyes will guide you to the most delicious flavours without a problem.

Three Crown Square is the largest trading area in the market.

Go to this market any day of the week, except Sunday.  Monday and Tuesday are not as busy because not all traders are present.
