Borough market, Saturday morning 9am, perfect time to visit. Crowds have not yet formed so you can wander at leisure. Lots of fresh food stalls, speciality breads, cheese's, vegetables, meats. Something for everyone.
You can buy hot food while you browse. It isn't the cheapest market you will visit, but even if you dont buy, it is well worth a visit for all the sights and smells.

This is a must visit while in London! We loved the fresh fruit and juice. We had breakfast here and it was delicious! We loved walking through the market and sampling the different types of food.

I'm a Londoner but have just returned from 10 years away and today was the first time I visited this market. It was very crowded, queues for food were quite long. There were few quiet places to stand, never mind sit and eat. The lay-out also seems pretty random, so it's hard to know where you are, or re-trace your steps to something that looked nice you saw before. Things are expensive. My wife had a Thai 'aromatic duck wrap with plum sauce', about GBP8.50, nice, pretty meaty, but expensive. I had a hot Scotch egg (nice but a touch salty for me) and sweet potato fries from a stall called Scotchtails. GBP6.90.
If you're used to crowds and jostling etc then you might be fine here. It was a bit claustrophobic here for me this Saturday, and I reckon it might we way more chilled out, and spacious on a week-day. So that's the plan for a future visit, when we hope to have a chance to exhale, relax, and really have a chance to wonder slowly and get a better grip on what is what at this venue.
ps. There was a fancy looking drinks shop/stall here - but the prices!!? A bottle of Westmalle Trappist beer, circa GBP2.20/30 at 'posh' Waitrose supermarket, was £3.80 here. Shame, they've a large range of interesting drinks, but the mark-ups!
