Borough Market

You think you know what food markets are all about? Borough Market will change your mind. This is one of those places that food dreams are made of. On Thursdays, Fridays and especially Saturdays you’ll find both the locals doing their weekly shopping plus people who have caught the train in from all over London just to buy the specialties on offer here.

Borough Market has things you won’t find anywhere else. Prepared food, meats, fish, chocolates, fruits, vegetables – all sold by people who love food and can tell you exactly what you’re buying, how it was grown or made. Foodie paradise.

There has been a market in this London Bridge area since the 11th century; it’s been on this site since the 13th century and in St Mary’s Churchyard triangle since the 18th. In the last decade, Borough Market has really won its reputation as London’s best local produce market as some of England’s most innovative and quality growers and food-makers have set up stalls.

Located near the Thames River, under the railway viaduct off Borough High Street and close to Southwark Cathedral, the market is easy to reach and in a wonderfully historic part of London.

When you’ve done your shopping, eaten your indulgent 'raclette' (melted cheese, potatoes and pickles) or fish and chips in the shadow of the church, follow the winding streets towards the river and head for the nearby Tate Modern or along to Southbank or across to St Paul’s. Borough Market fuels your stomach and your imagination.
