Borough Market Review

Located near the picturesque London Bridge is Borough Market, a area filled with bustling food businesses selling their delectable produce. Every corner you turn, there are different stalls selling a diverse variety of foods (from expensive truffle oil to miniature macaroons!) you can certainly collect a concoction of different ingredients, that you wouldn't necessarily be able to find with ease and in such a close proximity between each other in the city.

Stunning architecture - perfect for those artsy Instagram shots!
As it is located so close to the river, the market tends to be bustling with tourists who are eager to take pictures (stopping right in the middle of where everyone is trying to walk) but once you manage to navigate around them (without losing too much patience) the stalls are incredible. I went on a Wednesday morning at 10am so relatively early, which meant that it was reasonably empty and the perfect time to chat to stall holders and wander around in temporary peace. 

Stalls packed with fruit and vegetables - tomatoes in all shapes and sizes that you probably wouldn't find in the shops!

Mainly what I loved about the market, was the variety of international food stalls serving lunch, including goat, pulled pork, traditional fish and chips, Ethiopian and even Egyptian cuisine! - Let's just say, no matter where you're visiting from in the world, you'll be right at home!

Yes, I left the best until last, THE PATISSERIE, is remarkable. Although being slightly over price (probably having to compensate for the price of hiring a prime stall in central London) the baked goods are stunning, a mixture of macaroons, tarte au citron, meringues, enormous cookies, the list could be endless, but this stall never fails to provide me with ideas of what to bake in the future.

I think i is definitely worth a trip to Borough Market, it's been there for over 1000 years... so the market must be pretty incredible! Enjoy xx
