Borough Market is, without doubt, one of the most popular markets in all of London and, being over a thousand years old, is the one with the most history, too. Selling a variety of produce, this shopping experience can now be found on the south end of London Bridge, instead of directly on it, as it was originally situated in the 11th century.
Running every Saturday morning, Borough Market is referred to by the locals as London’s Larder, thanks to its massive range of food retailers. Italian cheeses, bay shrimp and Spanish cuisine are just some of the products that you are likely to find here, as well as some traditional British goods too.
Try before you buy is a regularly used concept here, so you can be sure that you enjoy the food before you purchase it. It is not uncommon to find some unusual ingredients at this market, often from exotic areas of the world, so don’t be shy to ask what to do with them, and how to get creative in the kitchen.
