Borough Market is a feast for the eyes. Have never visited without finding some product I haven’t tried before. Would love to live nearer to buy from the fish stall etc. Lots of places to eat and... more »
I really enjoyed walking around in Borough Market. It was nice to taste different kinds of foods and drinks. I highly recommend trying the hot fruit drinks, very very tasty and warming specially in winter. The oysters are super delicious, and on the same stand you can also find amazing paella. There are much more to buy from there, from cheese, sweets, oils, herbs and much more. Highly recommended to visit Borough market!
Great atmosphere. Great number of choices of food prepared by nationals of at least thirty countries. Bringing their best. Expensive but quality all around. Try a different vendor every trip. Or take something quality home to cook up yourself. Fresh seafood. Local butcher options and of course numerous vegetarian and vegan options with amazing spices. You will want to come back.
