  • You cannot help but be intrigued by some of the offerings on the numerous foodie stalls in Borough Market. From various cheeses (too numerous to mention) to Chilli Squid, a myriad of truffle oils, fis...  read more »
  • Been here twice, and loved both times. Great atmosphere and a place to grab lunch. There are some interesting local products you can try, but many of the food places are a toss up. Sadly, lots of the food looks great, but can be very disappointing in taste. I would ask locals to see what they recommend.
  • Excellent food selection showcasing some of the world's most famous dishes. Sadly it can get extremely crowded and there aren't many places to sit so you will find a lot of people sitting on the curb of the nearby roads. That said, it's a great place to spend an hour at lunchtime as a tourist. As a local, I would try to avoid peak lunch hours.
  • This is one of the top markets in London. Is under the bridge and with open spaces. There are different sections in the market, from stands dedicated to cheese to others dedicated to desserts and food. It's not huge but has a nice size. The surrounding areas are nice as well, is near the river and the Southwark Cathedral, but there are not much space to enjoy your food. On Fridays is not that crowded so is better.
  • One of my favourite street food markets in London! There's so much on offer, you should walk round at least all the stores before you make the tough decision of what to eat. Good for lunch, a savoury or sweet snack or even for fresh produce to cook yourself. Also just around the corner from Bridget Jones' house...
  • Absolutely fantastic selection, a variety of stalls that allow you to find anything your heart desires at a reasonable price too. And for the stalls I have visited the food has been top notch each time. The one downside is that all the above brings tons of people to this market, expect crowds.
