Review – Borough Market

Borough Market

Location – 8 Southwark St, London SE1 1TL

Borough Market is a wholesale and retail food market in Southwark on the South Bank of the Thames, It is one of the largest and oldest food markets in London and over the last few years has gained a reputation as one of the finest markets in London.

Part of that reputation is due to the quality of food and drink available and many of the market’s most famous traders have become brands in their own right.

The market generally consists of around 70 stalls at which fresh produce is sold this includes fish, meats, vegetables, ciders, cheeses, breads, coffees, cakes and patisseries. As well as produce grown in the UK, other stalls specialise in quality produce imported from abroad.

A Borough Market has existed in one form or another since 1014, although has moved to various sites around the Borough and London Bridge area. The present buildings are mostly from the 19th century when the market was one of the most important in London for fresh produce.

The Market is run by a charitable trust who maintain a commitment to quality and high standards, only stall holders that reach these standards are allowed to sell at the market.

In recent years the Market has become the haunt of celebrity chefs and a trendy place to buy food, it also features in a number of TV and films.

One of the joys of visiting the Borough Market is to wander around the various stalls and tasting the often delicious produce and take in the wonderful fragrances of the street food. Some of the food is expensive but the quality is usually excellent and the stall holders are very knowledgable about their products and are happy to impart that knowledge if you are interested.

The retail market operates on Wednesday to Thursday 10am to 5pm, Fridays from 10am to 6pm, and Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm. It is also open for lunches Mon and Tues 10 am to 5 pm. The wholesale market operates on all weekday mornings from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m.
