MARKET London’s Food Paradise

BOROUGH MARKET London’s Food Paradise

London’s Borough Market is undoubtedly London’s greatest artisan food market, providing gourmet street food as well as a plethora of raw items such as fresh cheeses and cured meats, exquisite fruit and vegetables, and freshly baked goodies. It’s nothing less than a food paradise.

There are also craft beer and wine vendors. Read this blog before planning your visit to Borough Market.

Borough Market is one of the city’s largest, oldest, and most popular food marketplaces. It began as a modest market near London Bridge and has since grown to become one of London’s largest and most prominent marketplaces. Although being an open-air market, it is mostly covered and shielded from the weather.

This real culinary paradise is made up of food kiosks that are primarily operated by the manufacturers themselves. Expect the finest of British goods and products, as well as exotic delights from all around the world.


Borough Market is located at 8 Southwark Street in Southwark, a district in southeast London. The nearest train station is London Bridge, which is served by the incredibly efficient Jubilee and Northern lines.

Keep a look out for signage identifying the appropriate exit for Borough Market as you leave the station. The path is well-marked, and it will take you directly to the Borough Market entrance.

The Jubilee line is easily accessible from the Central Line, which is close to London’s Ideal residences such as the Palace Gardens and Chatham.

In addition, the Piccadilly Line, which goes directly through London Perfect, connects to the Jubilee Line.


All stalls are open on Wednesday and Thursday from10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m,

Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m; and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

If you go on Monday or Tuesday, you will find limited vendors there. On these 2 days, the shop is open between 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Except in December, when there are special hours for the Christmas season, which is a terrific time to visit London. The market is closed on Sundays.

It is always preferable to visit the market early. It gets very crowded during the day and evening. You can even take the kids if you plan to go early.

It’s a popular wholesale buying destination for cooks and gourmands, as well as hungry visitors.

What should you try?

Some of my favourites include:

  • Scotch eggs
  • Pulled pork sandwiches
  • Freshly shucked oysters
  • Raclette cheese melts
  • Pad Thai
  • Moroccan tagine

While visiting Borough Market, it’s difficult to make a bad choice because there are so many delicious options! The cheese toastie at the Kappacasein booth, which is produced with Bermondsey cheese, is a popular favourite.  If you like oysters, don’t miss out on a trip to Wright Brothers Oyster and Porter House. Their fresh oysters come from all around the British Isles, as well as Ireland and France.

If you’re looking for something sweet, you’ve come to the perfect spot. There’s the delightful Bread Ahead Bakery, which serves the greatest doughnuts.

Comptoir Gourmand offers French-style desserts.  Have some goat’s milk ice cream at Greedy Goat for something a little unusual. The options are limitless.  Just go hungry as a favour to yourself!

Eating is not the only this market is famous for. Apart from eating you can enjoy cooking classes, wine tasting and other activities.

If you love food, trust me, this is the place you just can’t miss.
