London’s Borough Market in the Southwark neighborhood is packed with fruits and vegetables, cheeses, meats, breads, honeys, food stalls, and customers who appreciate them. Roughly 130 traders do an admirable job of catering to the hungers of locals and visitors. Unlike markets in Paris where people are doing their basic food shopping, the emphasis at Borough Market is more on ready-to-eat foods and gourmet delicacies. The rumble of trains is nearly drowned out by the enthusiastic chatter of shoppers discussing which foods to try next.
Full Market hours: Wednesday & Thursday 10 am-5 pm; Friday 10 am-6 pm; Saturday 8 am-5 pm.
Located at 8 Southwark Street in London (closest Tube stop is London Bridge)
