Time for another London post. There is simply so much to show and write about from this city. It is easily one of my favourite cities in Europe. I’ve already shared some foodie places from my visit to London and I want to add another one: Borough Market. British cuisine isn’t the most refined (or healthy) and I wouldn’t necessarily associate it with wholesome food or organic products. But they know their way around those kind of products on markets. Borough market is a good example.
The full market is only open on Wednesday through Saturday, but the lunch market is also open on Monday and Tuesday. If you get the chance go for the full market of course! There are 10 different sections at the market which host 11 different kind of categories of products, such as charcuterie, spices, fruit and vegetables, and bakery items. More than 100 different traders sell their products at Borough Market. Some of them are there on all days, some only on selective days. If you want to search for a specific (kind of) trader and want to know which day they are there, there is an interactive map on their website. The map also shows you where the trader is located.
Most traders sell products that you can use at home – delicious olive oils, dried peppers, fresh veggies, to name a few. But there is also plenty to buy to eat on the go. You can get a nice focaccia or even a curry at the market, or satisfy your sweeth tooth with a brownie or cookie. Oh, and if you are looking for a good cup of coffee, visit the Monmouth Coffee Company just outside of the market. It’s handsdown one of London’s best coffee companies!
