I can't say enough good things about this place. I wish I had four stomachs so I could roam the market and eat everything. Twice. Even if you're not hungry, it's such a wonderful atmosphere to just get sucked up in!

We always try to find a good local market and stock up on snacks and fruit when we travel. This market had a brilliant selection that helped us to keep our tummies and our budgets happy while in London!

This market is my favourite in the world. It has a charming atmosphere, and there are many reasonably priced foods to pick up. They have a fantastic selection of homemade preserves of interesting flavours, and delectable street foods made fresh before your eyes.

This was probably my favorite part of London. The food is amazing, and there is so much there! We went every week while we were in London and I still couldn't get enough.

Anyone who wants a non-pub-fish-n-chips experience should check out the Borough Market. Located close to the London Bridge metro stop, the Borough Market is an outdoor market selling various kinds of food. While I was there, I saw stands selling meat pies, Indian, Thai coconut food snacks, burgito (burger and burrito mixed in together), Chinese, and Argentinian street food.Recommended for:Foodies

You just have to go. Stacks of brownies the size of a small person. Amazing food options. Visit the perimeter shops as well such as cheese and specialty toiletries. Crowded but well worth the effort to visit.

Love this place. Amazing cheeses, butchers, fishmongers, chorizo, bakers, green grocers. If you live nearby, you don't need to shop for food anywhere else!

There's been a market operating on this site since the 11th Century but the present day buildings date from the mid 19th Century. If you want to see the wholesale fruit and vegetable market in full swing, you'll need to head here on any weekday between 2am and 8am. But it's the retail market with its gourmet foods which most experience, open daytimes Friday and Saturday only. Give yourelf an hour or so to explore the market and some of the atmospheric old streets surrounding it. Location-wise a good spot for lunch and worth combining with visits to the nearby Southwark Cathedral, Globe Theatre and Tate Modern, as well as a stroll along an interesting stretch of the River Thames. Highly recommended.

Take the tube a short journey over the river and along to borough market.
The food market is particularly epic. I have been so many times I cannot recount.
The market traders travel from far and wide to trade here at this historic and important food market.
It does get busy so get down there early!

Huge food market, ideal for veg/fruit shopping but also for a nice lunch out. Food stalls with delicatessen from different countries (French cheeses, Italian ham, British specialties), oysters, meat. Everyone can find something to eat.
