“Great market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

I loved it! Full of different options of food, from vegetable to chocolates, and a lot of ethnic stands. Go in the morning before it gets too crowed.

“Food Galore ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Staying in a hostel around the area and thought I would drop by for some food and it sure did not disappoint.

Tried the pie with mash & gravy for £5.50 and it was a good enough meal to last me till dinner and it tasted heavenly...

There were many more options that will not disappoint. Lots of freshly baked bread and pastries for sale as well as a variety of food from beef burgers to Indian cuisine to Japanese cuisine to fish & chips. You will definitely be able to find something that will suit your taste.

“Go nearly every week- so good but crowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I work just across the river and go nearly every Friday. I always take people who visit and they are never disappointed. Best to go on a Friday or Saturday as there is more selection and better to go earlier, say 10 or 11 before it gets really crowded. Borough olives do the best red pesto I have ever tasted along with some amazing fresh Italian olives, there is a fruit stall near the micro herbs and vegetarian street food run by an older couple with the best British strawberries, raspberries, nectarines and cherries and they are really reasonably priced. So many great oils, breads and cheeses you can easily spend a fortune so be careful! but I've found it to be a really friendly market with some great stuff to buy. worth putting up with the crowds!

“great but crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
