If you’re a foodie at heart, you’ll be in paradise at Borough Market. There are endless opportunities to indulge in international cuisine and local favorites. You won’t be disappointed at the Borough Market.
My senses were on overload as I entered. My nose tried to differentiate between odors that permeated the open market place. My eyes scanned the different kiosks. Colors and alluring signs pulled me from one stall to the next. In many spots, I was able to touch and taste samples while I listened to the everyday chatter of nearby people and the constant hum of traffic. So much was happening simultaneously. I felt swept up by the experience.
Breads, breads and more bread…
A fishy smell led me to a this counter.
I had never seen so many types of pot pies. Several kiosks raved about their product.
There was another counter that spotlighted their award-winning pork pies. Even though I do not eat pork, I wondered who would eat a pork pie.
How many types of licorice are there?
Health food stands were here and there.
Enormous pans of prepared food had people milling around.
Large wheels of cheese reminded me of the dairy state, Wisconsin.
What makes someone an olive expert?
After munching on a glorious feast, who could indulge in any of the sweet tables?
The Borough Market is open Thursday and Friday afternoons and during the day on Saturday. It is located near the London Bridge tube stop. If you love food and are in London, it would be hard to pass up this experience.
