There are a ton of great markets in London – some of which I’ve visited and others of which I intend to visit in time – but despite this, I can’t help but play favorites with Borough Market. I’m not alone here, of course, as it pretty much always seems to be bustling, but there’s something about Borough Market I love. It’s just so lively and jam-packed with interesting things to look at (and to taste, of course). I could go again and again, and I suspect I will.
^ Even if you’re not much of a gingerbread fan, when you see a gingerbread skeleton, you buy a gingerbread skeleton. Cute!
^ Cheese puns are always noted and appreciated.
^ When you see people with platefuls of cheese and pickles, you hunt down the source. Hat tip to Kappacasein for providing such cheesy excellence.
^ 10am Prosecco is definitely a thing, right? Right….?!
While Borough Market is chock full of amazing stuff year-round (evidence: my February 2014 visit), I have to confess that I might love fall at the market most of all. I loved seeing all the piles of apples, pumpkins, and various other autumnal delights and treats. And I definitely can’t complain about a place that houses so much good stuff that I always leave feeling a bit bummed I was only able to try a teeny tiny sliver of what I wanted to try.
