  • I really enjoyed walking around in Borough Market. It was nice to taste different kinds of foods and drinks. I highly recommend trying the hot fruit drinks, very very tasty and warming specially in winter. The oysters are super delicious, and on the same stand you can also find amazing paella. There are much more to buy from there, from cheese, sweets, oils, herbs and much more. Highly recommended to visit Borough market!
  • Great atmosphere. Great number of choices of food prepared by nationals of at least thirty countries. Bringing their best. Expensive but quality all around. Try a different vendor every trip. Or take something quality home to cook up yourself. Fresh seafood. Local butcher options and of course numerous vegetarian and vegan options with amazing spices. You will want to come back.
  • Really great place to grab lunch. The cuisines of the world all together in one place! There is also a lot of seating available. A great mix of food, Thai, Japanese, Indian, BBQ, you name it it’s there. Lots of chance to try a sample before you buy as well. Try the cinnamon whirls as well - they are amazing!
  • The main and most famous food market in the city. A place where to delight yourself. Walk through all the stops of fresh fruit, meat, fish, seafood... Local farmers and producers will be offering their best stuff. An excellent food offer all around the market with many spots, taverns and restaurants.
  • WOW! Seriously how have I not been here sooner? Oh the food is amazing and just so much choice. Wish we had a market like this near us as the fruit and veg looked so tasty and the fish stalls were incredible. We tried some empanadas which were stunning but this duck wrap was out of this world and they packed so much in!!! Honestly you have to go. You'll find something for every taste here.
