It seems to have become a rarity of late to have much time out in the city which I currently call home… London. For those that follow on Twitter, you may be aware that I have been ill with flu, keeping me from my work and of course – blogging! After a couple of days respite and a flow of home-made honey, ginger and orange tea, I’m back 🙂
So today I was thrilled to feel up for a day out and to take a trip down the Northern Line to London Bridge to what is possibly my favourite foodie place – Borough Market.
Now, this market holds a special place in my heart. Not only was it the first market that my partner and I visited when we moved here, but it is also somewhere that never ceases to satisfy! Great food, amazing choice and friendly stall owners that are always happy to discuss the produce with customers. Perfect foodie heaven. With samples galore and a range of sweet and savoury dishes, we really love it as the perfect place to wander aimlessly. It does get quite busy but this only adds to the cultured and lively environment, it is such a fantastically social place that you can’t help but get caught up in it all.
Borough Market offers a vast range of stalls to cover all tastes, there is bound to be something for all. It was also fantastic to see that during the summer period there is a food festival which will run on a daily basis (The market usually only opens Thursday – Saturday). So during the summer months there is even more hot and fresh food to be enjoyed. Whether you like British, Italian or Indian food, freshly made smoothies or delicious chocolate brownies there is something for everybody.
There is nothing more that I can say… only photos. Enjoy 🙂
