Top ways to experience Borough Market
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
How to get there
  • London Bridge • 5 min walk

Max and his team at Furness Fish Market could not have been more helpful. Supplied the most amazing lobsters for a very special birthday meal. Very friendly and professional - highly recommend. Thank you!

For Pete’s sake, ensure that you plan to visit during a meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack - or all of the above).
The shops are beautiful, and there is so much to look at. The hot foods area has now moved to a new food court-like area which is lovely.
If you can do try the crumble at Humble Crumble, and coconut pancakes at Khanom Krok.
Also, if you like to cook Spice Mountain is well worth a stop!

Great market with amazing street food from all over the world, the fresh fish and meat stands offer so much choice, it is a little bit expensive but the quality is fantastic, there is also plenty of lovely bars and restaurants surrounding the market, all worth a visit

My first time to Borough Market and I will be back to try more food. I wish I was 20 years younger and could eat all day without having a food hangover. Next time I'll go on Saturday morning for an early brunch, walk all day around the city and return before they close for round 2. If you haven't been and you're a foody - you need to go.

Wanderful little market in the heart of london. Small little places selling their own products, fresh organic and tasty . We bought 3 kinds of cheeses, and a loaf of bread, and ate while listening to a guy singing and playing guitar.
Must visit, check the opeining hours.

It’s not a complaint when I say too much to choose from but more of a compliment.

If you visit on an empty stomach your mind will go into overdrive and want everything. It was an amassing experience and with all the great food the best was the sausage rolls at The Ginger Pig. Ridiculously tasty food and something I’ll remember.

If you are going there to buy your meat or groceries,I recommend The Ginger Pig for meat,Shellseekers for Dorset fish and Elsie &Bent for fruit and veg,including some great Italian imports you won't easily find elsewhere.
If you are there as a tourist, be aware it can be very crowded on Fridays and Saturdays and not ideal for prams or groups especially late morning onwards. There are some good snack options including oysters to eat on the spot,empenadas and always huge sausage rolls from Ginger Pig.
None of this comes cheap.
