Bought different varieties of sugared coated and chocolate nuts however the nuts were soft - would definitely recommend you taste before you buy

What a wonderful market, I had problems remembering that I was in London, and not in France or somewhere similar. The stalls are well laid our with plenty of room around for people to walk and ponder and buy. There is masses to look at, all tempting to purchase too. Wonderful vegetables, fruits of every variety that one could think... More

This market is crowded but full of wonderful foods to bring home or eat on the spot. We even found a quiet pub nearby that would let us bring in food from the market if we ordered drinks. If you visit the market be sure to stop at the Market offices, where you can pick up free Market Guides and... More

We enjoyed a great selection of food, wine and fun. The Spanish paella alone is worth the visit. Plenty of choices and fun to wander around and sample

Fantastic selection of fresh, homemade, regional food and drink, a real foodies paradise. Try the salted beef bagels, sample the fresh, homemade donuts or some pad Thai. Walk off your snacks by following the river south to Tower Bridge. So close to the tourist sites of the Tate and the Thames you have no excuse to miss it.

Opens on a Thursday to Saturday and sells everything a foody can dream of. Can get very busy on a Saturday afternoon so an early visit is better. You won't regret the visit

Love the Borough Market by the London Bridge. You can see it on Saturday's, and you can get to it from the Big Bus Tours also. Amazing food, produce, seafood, pastries, brads and homemade sangria. So fun to look at everything. They also have food stalls which smell amazing.

We took a stroll round this market on a busy Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed taking in all the many smells and sights. There are so many food stalls, we were spoilt for choice but ended up with a delicious hog roast. The other stalls selling fresh bread, cheese etc also looked amazing – never seen so much wonderful food... More

Great & varied food mainly brought from outside London. Well presented stalls and some interesting restaurants for all pockets. Buying produce from the stalls, however interesting & varied they may be, is not cheap. Many points of interest along the Southbank are easily walks from here which makes it an excellent place to centre a half day's walk
