Food markets

Is Borough Market the best food market in London? Are there any others worth going to?

There are other smaller farmer' markets around London http://www.lfm.org.uk/

If you are looking to pick up something for self catering, like these items we got at the Pimlico Road Farmers' Market http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=34erfaq&s=6

Partridge's has a market (it is mostly ready to eat foods) www.partridges.co.uk/foodmarket…

Or wonder around Fortnum & Mason's store and then walk to the next street for Paxton & Whitfield's cheese shop. Selfridges food hall on Oxford Street is also worth a look.

TexScott, thx so much for the links to London farmers mkts & Partridges. Everyone talks about the wonderful mkts in Paris, but hardly a word about the ones in London, except for the tourist-infested ones. I had no idea there were so many.

Consider Broadway Market too, in South Hackney not far from Shoreditch.

It is run as a Community Interest Company, so profits from the operation of the market are re-invested into the local community. Many of its regulars would have shopped at Borough Market previously.

Maltby Street Market is a bit east of Borough, also on Saturday mornings, and is a great destination for food lovers. We often combine with a trip to Borough.

If it's a nice day, there's a micro-brewery in the railway arches that serves beer, with a few picnic tables outside. Also baked goods, cheeses, meats, veg, etc. Check their website for a map as it's not the most obvious location and there are some stalls around the block.

I hope most of your blog is more accurate than the advice on getting to & from London airports.

There is also the real food market on the South Bank (behind the Royal Festival Hall). Not as big or comprehensive as Borough but some good stalls and a good spot to pick up a snack to eat nearby if the weather's fine.
