A Morning at Market

Buried somewhere between huge imposing glass buildings, hiding behind all the chains, franchises and all too familiar shops, restaurants and cafes, lies a small reminder of what London once was, Borough Market.

This bustling little corner of London, harmonising with the occasional train rumbling overhead, is not only a great way to support small family businesses who have long been priced out of the high street, but also the perfect place for a family day out. The trick is to be an early bird; the rare haven it is, by the afternoon Borough Market becomes very congested and rather stressful. Any time before 11am is ideal if you want to be able to amble around without feeling like you’re one step away from falling pregnant by a complete stranger.

Whether it’s fresh ingredients for tonight’s supper you’re looking for…

…or something a little more indulgent, Borough has it all. You name it, it’ll probably be there.

One of the best bits is that there are tasters on every corner, so you really do get to try a little bit of everything- make sure you go hungry! The spicy venison sausage was a clear winner , and made it home with us!Coverflow-18

How pretty are these mushrooms? There’s a sentence I never thought I’d say! Don’t they look like something straight out of an Enid Blyton fairytale?

Little Gracie adored being allowed to walk around freely, and it was only when he saw the ice-cream stand that he came cuddling up to my legs and looking up at me all doe-eyed… How could I resist?

Don’t go thinking that it’s just food, either; Borough is adorned with beautiful little flower and home trinket stalls, perfect for the home-maker.

When our bellies could take no more (sob – one of those occasions where you wish you had a bottomless stomach!), and we were all in need of an afternoon nap, we said goodbye to Borough Market…

  2. I work very close to Borough Market and definitely agree you have to go early in the morning. I remember the first time I went one Saturday afternoon and it was heaving and I did not get what the fuss was about. But now I love it! It’s also lovely on a summers evening with the bars and restaurants in and around the market full of people. It feels like being on holiday! Love the dungarees too! xx

  8. My name is Ashley Thomas and I base in USA…“My life is back!!! After almost a year of Broken Relationship, my girlfriend left me with a broken heart. I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide,i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Uzor, which i met online.On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across a lot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back,Ex Husband Pregnancy,Cure Cancer,HIV AIDS,And other Sickness,some testified that he can cast a spell to stop Divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a man called Luke John, he testified about how he brought back his Ex lover in less than 48hours, and at the end of his testimony he dropped Dr Uzor’s E-mail address , After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him and explained my problem to him, and he assured me that i will get my girlfriend back in the next 48hours.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do,Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my girlfriend who didn’t call me for the past (11 Months),gave me a call in just 2 days, my girlfriend came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. Dr Uzor is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man.
