One of the delights of the pre Christmas period in London is to take a trip to Borough Market and sample some of the festive fare to get into that real Christmas spirit.
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 knowledgeable about their products and are happy to impart that knowledge if you are interested.
