Foodies Paradise at Londons Borough Market 

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a foodie , no visit to London is complete without an early morning wander round Borough Market.

Foodie Heaven this way …..

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.
