No visit to London is complete without an wander round London’s best food market. Borough Market is London’s oldest food market , initially it was just a fruit & vegetable market before it expanded to what it is today .

Borough Market is firmly on the foodies  map as the place to go,  you’ll find that a majority of the stall holders are the actual producers , from farmers to fishermen , bakers to butchers selling their products direct from source.

The best time to visit Borough Market  is before 8am, skip breakfast at home and kick off the morning with breakfast at Maria’s, I  recommend the sausage or bacon sandwich with a mug of steaming hot tea before heading off for a wander round the various stalls.
