borough market, london

December 5, 2011

Borough Market is one of my favourite places to go in London. It can be pretty intensely busy but if you get there early enough you have the run of the land to wander stall to stall trying samples of everything imaginable.

From olive oils, hummus, jams, mustard, olives, and cheeses (we fell head over heels for a Caerphilly [Wales represent!] and so bought it for our awesome hosts since we couldn’t bring it home), to Turkish Delight, bread, quiches, and chocolates. It’s basically a food lovers heaven.

As well as green grocers, fish mongers, butchers, and artisan traders, there’s also an incredible selection of food vendors selling things like curries, hot sandwiches, and pies.

We bought an amazing hot dog from Boston Sausage and a haloumi veggie burger from The Veggie Table which we raved about for days afterwards. I’d also highly recommend Pie Minister (best name ever?) whose selection is epic (they have locations in other parts of the country too!).

I’m just still kind of sad I didn’t get my face around one of those pork pies. I mean look at them!
