Borough Market

Author: Sofia Gurevich London, United Kingdom


Borough Market is the oldest market in the city, whose history dates back to the 13th century. The best days to visit are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays when the market operates to its fullest. Most importantly, come on an empty stomach. It is hard to imagine a place that would better describe the spirit of London, with its bustle and wonderful mishmash of people and cultures. Even harder to describe are all the things you should try there. Among the favorites: The most delicious British cider (New Forest Cider on Miller Road); Duck sandwiches, which create a long line of people taking up a length of half the market (Le Marché du Quartier on Stoney Street); Spicy vegetable crepes, which are prepared by an Indian mama, Mrs. Sandhu, with her daughter (Temptings, Three Crown Square); The freshest oysters, which you can open on the spot and eat right there (Richard Haward's Oysters on Stoney Street); Make sure to get a glass of Pink Prosecco that is served nearby (Cartwright Brothers on Middle Road); The most delicious blueberry cheesecake in the world (Backhaus Bakery on Green Market) and a wonderful coffeeshop (Monmouth on Stoney Street), where you can get a coffee to takeaway, as well as buy freshly ground beans. Often, London chefs shoot episodes for their culinary shows at the market, which adds even more flavor to the place.
