If you fancy yourself as a bit of a foodie , no visit to London is complete without an early morning wander round Borough Market.
Borough Market is London’s oldest food market , previously a wholesale fruit & vegtable Market before Covent Garden sprung up and the fruit & vegtable retailers moved out to Vauxhall in the 70’s.
Fast forward to today, and Borough Market is firmly on the map as the place to go for all things food. You’ll find that a majority of the stall holders are the actual producers , from farmers to fishermen , bakers to butchers with products direct from source.
The best time to visit Borough Market is before 8am, to ensure you get ahead of the hoards of tour groups . I like to kick off the morning with breakfast at Maria’s, I can recommend the sausage or bacon sandwich with a mug of steaming hot tea.

Take public transport to London Bridge tube / rail / bus stops. Its steps away from the bridge.
The market operates six days a week Monday to Saturday ( closed Sundays )
Take cash , bank cards are not generally taken by everyone, there are cash pounts located just outside the market on various locations along Borough High Street.
Best time to visit ? early is best anytime before 9am, otherwise you’ll get caught in the crowds.
