“Disappointed”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had been looking forward to visiting Borough Market for a long time. We went on Bank Holiday Monday...it was closed! Very disappointed!

“great but crowded”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Had a very good time looking at food. We bought some sausage and cheese. It was very crowded and hard to get where you wanted and lines for food items. Open Thursday to Saturday. Go have fun.

“Sensory Overload”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A lively and colorful market for picking up interesting foods/goods from around the UK. Stalls full of different foods, drinks, veggies, meats, cheeses, fruits and plants. Lots (LOTS) of people on the weekends milling about, so you might choose to go on a quieter week day, but not all of the stalls are open on the quieter days.

“A must if you're in the area”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Borough Market is a must of any foodie that visits London. The range of sweet things, beers, oils, ciders and everything in between that is on offer is second to none! I stopped by ScotchTails who do the best Scotch Eggs and Sweet Potato chips that I have ever had. There are also many other vendors and the choice is too much for someone that enjoys good quality food.

“Crowded but fun for foodies and families”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A busy Saturday lunchtime when we went, but with terrific food on sale it was well worth a slight jostle!
Every member of the family got to choose just what they wanted for 'right now' - wurst in rolls, falafel wraps, chocolate brownies, flaxjacks, mini biscuits, doughnut shaped peaches, blue berries - so lunch 'on the move' was a dream. The food wasn't terribly cheap, but the portions were good and so was the quality.
We stocked up on cheese and fruit for later, very pleased with our purchases.
Glorious to wander around, even if you aren't planning on buying anything, as the stalls are set up in a very attractive fashion.
A stroll along the river, finishing your food and licking your fingers, rounds this trip off nicely.
