Borough Market

Picture a market that has at least three or four stands of every kind of food you could possibly want to eat.  A market with 130 stalls displaying various foods from around the world.  A market where you could rid your tummy of hunger from cheese samples alone.  A market where you can find the hottest chili peppers known to man, the most exotic mushrooms you could consume without tripping, hundreds of freshly ground spices, the rarest of berries, and multiple types of chocolate (plus chocolate) samples that are to die for.  Where cheese is melted by the block and ostrich meat and kangaroo burgers are cooked up like they’re no big deal.  Where a whole stand is dedicated to flax seed creations, another to freshly churned butter, one to balsamic vinegar, and one to rapidly shucking oysters.  Oh, and among all of these items, you can still get your basic apples, broccoli, and bread, all at its freshest for a rather cheap rate.

This is Borough Market.  Also the largest market I’ve ever experience in my life.  Yes, I’m in love with it.  Who wouldn’t be?

Open Thursdays 11-5, Fridays 12-6, Saturdays 8-6.  Located near the London Bridge, if you live/come to London, check it out.

    I’ve never been to Europe, but London just seems like a must see, as soon as I do get a change to go to Europe.

    The chicken curry looks amazing! As do all the sweets.

    I’m picturing it, and I love it! Actually, while my new job is not outdoors, the set up is very similar to this (Market District). If I get hungry I can just walk around and sample foods to control my hunger. And everyone is having fun while working (such as in these photos!).
