This food hall full of fresh fruit and veg plus jams cheeses etc is worth a visit. Expensive yes. But fresher food you cannot find and if like us your willing to try anything there is plenty of exotic things I have never seen before let alone eaten.

Endless choice of food stalls, too yummy to imagine. Lots of lunchtime snacks. My personal favourite is the duck confit baguette (from Le Marche du Quartier). Also plenty of artisan and specialist food shops

Great for a variety of fresh food for lunch. Including great fish and chips. Food can be taken to the park of a church right next door. Not cheap

On a drizzly day with a hangover a trip to Borough Market is a great way to restore body and soul. This is a proper working market, small but with a great selection of food and produce.

Wide range of delicious food, but rather overpriced compared to other street food locations, e. g. Camden Lock and White Cross Street

Borough Markets is located a stones throw away from the London Bridge Tube Stop on Southwark Street. I ventured there on a Thursday around 2pm and found the array of fresh produce on offer to be overwhelming. My suggestion is to go on an empty stomach and do a lap or two around the market checking out what they have... More

Dropped by the Borough Market when it was 10 degrees F. in London, thinking that the Market would be a warren of warm winter-resistant restaurants and curios. Wrong! It's very much a working hub and not really a tourist attraction per se, but it might have been more fun if I'd been smarter and waited till Spring to visit.

We called here today. What a great place. There were a lot of different food stalls from fish to artisan bread. We had a salt beef sandwich on rye bread with pickle and mustard. We bought one to share. It was delicious and at £6.50 very reasonable as it was full of filling. We also had a lemonade, that too... More

When in London, I make sure I visit the market for a bite. Unfortunately for my waistline, the bite turns into several bites every time. Okay the crowds can make it somewhat uncomfortable at peak times but if you arrive an hour before the lunch rush it is bearable and you can take your food to the church yard to... More

If you're a foodie then you have to visit this market in London! The smells, tastes and sights are wonderful. After looking around all the tasty food i settled on a pork bap from a spit roasted pig and it was soo good! There's a huge variety from cakes and breads, to cheeses, to meat and also vegetarian! It's a... More
