A fascinating place to spend an hour or so without having to spending any money although you will probably be tempted by all the wonderful fresh produce on show!

Great venue and atmosphere here. The food stalls are great and the smells very enticing. You can't go past the corned beef sandwiches, however I also went for the roast hog and apple sauce ciabatta. Great, great, great!

If you are a foodie or a avid cook, you must make a trip here! Not a very big market, but interesting enough to visit. There are food stalls selling freshly baked bread, sandwiches, burgers, juices, paella, fresh oysters! And yes, there is a processo bar! An outlet of the Monmouth cafe is located just outside the market. Long queue... More

Certainly worth a visit. All of the food looks amazing (and what we tried was amazing too). If a foodie you could easily wander around for many hours on end. It does get quite busy during the lunch time though. We tried the focaccia at Bread Ahead and also a fresh watermelon juice from one of the fruit stands. All... More

This is probably the best market I have ever been to and I have been to many!!!!!! There are stalls selling food and drink from all over the world and it dazzles the senses. Almost all of the stall will let you sample their wares and that can be an experience in itself. The array of foods is overwhelming, but... More

I'be been to Borough Market last october, but I was with my in laws, so no away to eat street food. But I was wondering how good would it be to pick up smalls portions of food and taste as much my stomach can handle. So, we'd come back this july to London and Borough Market was on my list... More

I work in London Bridge and therefore this is really close for me, often meet up here for a bit of lunch with work colleagues & family or pop down here for lunch alone - would highly recommend grabbing the Baileys cheesecake from the cheesecake stall or the sweet potato fries in the food market! Really nice in the summer... More

In a Wednesday, at 3:00 is possible to have a good food after a long walk at London, plenty diverse food, from different countries, no so cheap but high quality, fruit, vegetarian and organics are available, truffle stuff are the best for those who are looking for cook ingredients.

I'd give Borough Market 100 stars if I could. During past trips to London, I visited all the Big Sites -- you know, the Tower of London, Harrod's, the Tate, the Imperial War Museum, etc. -- all wonderful and amazing. But this time, an English friend told me to meet him at Borough Market and I was just blown away.... More

Just take a walk through the re-vamped Market. This is Foodie Heaven. Fresh food, food to go, restaurants, cafes - just an amazing selection of Cuisines. I particularly like the Lobster at F!sh - but that is just me. If you want a really good alternative have the fish or sausage at the takeaway counter.
