This market is a very interesting place to visit, especially for food lovers. Its just a couple of stops from Marble Arch tube station. Though full of a lot of products, it is not very big, you can stroll the whole place in an hour. It's neat and clean and a pleasure to walk around. The products offered there are:... More

My friend and I visited Borough Market mid December and it was a fantastic experience. We had an amazing rosemary seasoned hog roast ciabatta sandwich with hot apple sauce. I was in food heaven! It tasted divine! We then moved onto the desserts. I bought a white chocolate chip cookie that was bigger than the span of my hand and... More

The Market is especially busy and buzzing on Saturday mornings. The wide variety of food stands always leaves me having a hard time deciding on what I actually want! There are nice options for food to eat immediately or breads, cheeses and meats to take home for later.

We went to the Borough Market because i'm a huge fan of food (so as my friends) and it was really beautiful and so charming ! The food was delicious and the stand so bucolic ! But it was a little small (from what i read it was supposed to be big...) A place to visit in London !

The atmosphere here on a Saturday is out of this world. It's packed with people, four or five deep at all the lunchtime food stalls. The smell of familiar and exotic foods is overpowering. You have to eat something, but what to choose - veggie, spicy, filling, traditional, something you've never dared to try before? It's all here - none... More

This is a must see for any London visitor who loves food. Crowded to a ridiculous extent, but with people who know how to move through tight spaces without jostling. The array of cheese, fruit, veg, meat, seafood, bread and street food is sensational. A couple of pubs at the entrance serve a good pint for the weary market goer.... More

It would be impossible to visit this food bazaar without actually eating something. The atmosphere of bustling market stalls with splendid displays and such a cornucopia of wonderful aromas precludes any such resistance. Luckily my partner had scoped out the offer and recommended the Boston Sausage company for a Winter Burger Special. A burger of goodness with real meat, delicious... More

We just strolled round the market on Saturday morning. We had already planned to go to lunch at The George Inn just across the road in Borough High Street so we had to resist the temptation to eat at almost every stall. But we did buy some pastries and cakes to eat later on. You could easily spend a fortune... More
