Borough Market is one of the largest, oldest and in recent decades most renowned food markets in London located near the Thames in the borough Southwark on the southern end of London Bridge. With its wide variety of British and international quality produce Borough Market is popular with locals, tourists, chefs and food writers alike.
The earliest records of the market date back to the 11th century. The market in time eventually developed being a wholesale veg and fruit market in the 20th century into the renowned food market it is today, selling a wide range of quality British produce and international regional specialities since the 1980ies, becoming the largest farmers market in Britain with farmers and small-time artisan producers from all over the country bringing their high quality produce to the market every week. Besides quality British and international regional produce there are also street food stalls with food from all over the world. The present buildings date back to the 1850ies partly covering the busy (almost) daily market.
Borough Market is an important part of London and British food culture and well worth a visit while you are staying in London.
