Borough Market Review
There's been a market in Borough since Roman times. This latest incarnation, spread under the arches and railroad tracks leading to London Bridge Station, is London's foodie central, where some of the city's best merchants of comestibles purvey their wares from stalls. Fresh coffees, gorgeous cheeses, olives, and baked goods complement the organically farmed meats, fresh fish, fruit, and veggies.
Don't make any other lunch plans for the day; this is where celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's scallop man cooks them up fresh at Shell Seekers and The Ginger Pig's rare-breed sausages sizzle on grills, while for the sweet lover there are chocolates, preserves, and Whirld's artisanal confectionary, as well as 18 restaurants and cafés, most above average.
Seven of the original Borough Market traders, including the celebrated Kappacasein Swiss raclette stand that serves heaping plates of melted Ogleshield cheese over new potatoes, baby pickles, and onion, have established a breakaway market on nearby Maltby Street, which operates on Saturday morning from 9 am.
