and cheeses, fruit, vegetables, bread of all sorts and sizes, rare breeds meat, game, cakes, oils, you name it - if it can be eaten it will be at Borough Market. Just looking makes you hungry so it is useful that some of the stands sell food to be eaten there and then - soup, pork batches, hamburgers etc. Whether... More

Great atmosphere, wonderful selection of food fish, meat, cheeses, pate, fruit, veg, mushrooms. Plus great selection of cafés and takeaway food stalls. Yes it may be a little more expensive but the quality is great and stall holders knowledgable.

This market has varied foods available. Unless you're truly grocery shopping, there are only a few things that might interest you. If you're just visiting as a tourist, give yourself 15-30 minutes to walk around and take in all of the booths. There are some delicious alfajores offered at one of the outside booths. Their empanadas smelled delicious but I... More

On a recent business trip to London, we were given a lunch allowance and asked to go to Borough Market to have something to eat. What a delight walking around the market and gazing at the stalls! Everything looked inviting and tempting and it took a lot of will power to resist the spread. It's expensive, no doubts about that... More

Try to get to Borough Market for a pre-Christmas visit every year. Travel up from Dorset to purchase some gourmet specials - cheeses, pates, three bird roast. Not cheap but quality produce - just a few luxuries for the festive season.

Theres not a lot of traditional British food here, lots of spanish ingredients which are ten times the price they are in spain, French cheeses- good range but you pay. Organic meat and organic veg are great quality so i go for that. The Turkish store with the mezze plate and bread for 5 pounds is the best value lunch... More

My Wife was recommended to visit Borough Market by a colleague and we were not disappointed. There was an amazing array of stalls selling fresh food and produce and the area also has many great looking restaurants. If you like food and cooking and are ever looking for something special then this is a good place to look. We will... More

It's wonderful when you find a beautiful use of an otherwise absolute mess. This is the borough market, apparently labyrinthine, under the railways and still incredibly charming and soul warming. A great highlight of the trip to London. Great food, but as everything in Landan...a bit over prized (still worth it).

I really enjoyed walking the stalls and sampling various farm to fork fare. People are very friendly, and the food stuffs are delightful. It's a real gem. Lots of cheeses, charcuterie, juices, fruits and veggies, breads, olives...it's just enjoyable to walk around.
