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.More
