Oh were oh where do a group of fussy/eclectic eaters go for good food? Well that would be Borough Market of course!
It’s safe to say that since Borough Market’s first appearance in the eleventh century, many have heard of this bustling selection of food and household-goods traders but here’s my guide to perfect day at the market.
If your in need of a sweet treat to pick you up, i suggest a bag of Comptoir Gourmand macaroons who trade in the Green Market. They are rich, tasty and cheaper than many banal, mass-produced delicacies. They also come in an array of strong colours which certainly keep me happy on rainy afternoon. Comptoir Gourmand also offer a selection of creative meringues, brownies, tarts and more patisserie staples to a high standard like French éclairs.
Paul Wheeler (fresh supplies) LTD and The Tomato Stall are great places for fresh produce. The Total Organics juice bar is also a great place for a cup of fresh juice, nothing added. There’s tons of cheese, charcuterie, fish, condiment and bakery stalls however be patient. They’re all different and all have something unique to offer. A good pair of shoes will serve you well, and an empty stomach! The traders often have sample. Try before you buy of course, and what better way to shop that trying a spoonful of granola before buying yourself five bags!
And not forgetting the food-food. And by this i mean the lunch stalls. This is the hardest part of your trip to the market. Theres everything from burgers to soup and Pad Thai. It’s a great place if your in a group of people with different tastes or dietary requirements and its great to but a selection of foods and sit by the Thames for a bench-picnic.8 Southwark St, London SE1 1TL
