Owner description: An amazing food market dating back to the 13th century.
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Borough Market is located on the south side of the river. If you are walking, aim for the Shard, and if you are using the Tube, get out at London Bridge Tube Station
Although this is very much a working market ( as against a tourist market ),it is a great place to wonder through even if you have no need to buy food.
The Market specialises in fresh fruit; veg.; meat ; cheeses ;fish ; an amazing selection of breads, and a great selection of savouries. Being a market, a great number of stall holders appear to operate on a cash only basis.
Three things I particularly like about this market are -
1) it is covered (2) the freshness of the products on offer, and (3) the quality, and I think it is the latter which makes this market special.
The market was only open from Thursday to Saturday when we visited, and gets very busy between 12 and 2, so my advice is to go earlier if possible.

I love this market
You can have street food and shop at the same time. A must see place on London
Fish and chips is good but not great still many food choice available

The first look of the place itself is so tantalising, so different to what you would have seen, pubs coffee houses street quick eateries all so well mixed up..lot and lots of places to eat on the other inside the market, you are spoilt for choices from fresh vegetables and fruits, Turkish delight, Indian platter. My favourite pick was the Ethiopian food ..
I missed coming here in my last visit to London, happy that I did not miss this time .. in the after noon.. it will be crowded .. but that is the real fun..

Certainly not in a pretty part of London, Borough Market is nonetheless charming in its sheer breadth of genuine family-run businesses, street food stalls and diversity of fresh produce from across the world. Definitely worth a visit on a warm day, but avoid lunch time as it becomes stiflingly busy.
