Borough Market, a place full of flavour, character and London charm. When I asked my Dad what he fancied doing whilst he was staying with Adam and I for the weekend, his first suggestion was borough market, with Adam and I being massive foodies, we were sold, so when the weekend arrived, off we went to Borough Market.
It’s got an old industrial vibe, despite the new glossy entrance the one you go through if you’re coming in from London Bridge. The building, just like the food stalls are intriguing and worth stopping to have a look at- and don’t forget to look up!
We’d had a pretty massive breakfast, but that didn’t stop me with the free samples. From fudge to cake, pies and pate; i was interested in anything and everything.
Borough quite clearly had something for everyone. From Vegan, Gluten free and juicing options
, the place was packed with all different types of people, all eating all different types of food from all corners of the world.
We’d sort of wandered straight into the sweet stuff: jams, meringue, melon pieces, fruit salads and cakes and a whole host of drinks stalls, selling iced teas, cold coffees and homemade lemonades. It was a foodies dream desert destination.
Moving towards the mains of falafel, hummus, burgers, wraps, lasagne, curry and stir fry, it all smelt amazing!
There’s also a fresh food section full of fruits and veggies for you to take home and cook yourself. There’s a whole host of strange and unusual, specialist foods and ingredients like asian mushrooms, Spices and tomatoes of every kind on offer.
It was amazing to see so many foods, so many people enjoying those foods and getting to try things you wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to. We really enjoyed our time at borough market and will be back for a full breakfast, lunch and dinner sometime soon! I'd highly recommend visiting if you're in town, you'll find all of the world best food favourites all under one roof!
We were exploring the rest of south bank for the rest of the day, you can read about what we got up to after borough market here.
