“Food galore”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

We passed these markets on the way to the London Bridge and it was definitely worth the stop over.

All the stalls are fully of friendly people with even better food.

“Always worth a visit”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

Borough Market is a bit of an institution. Lively and bustling during the day you can buy all manner of tasty foods and drinks here. There's something to suit everyone's tastes.
In the evening most market stalls close but there are still tasty snacks and food to be had as some stalls stay open to serve hot food through the evening.
This is very popular with those visiting the pubs around the market which are always buzzing with people spilling out into the streets to enjoy a beer with friends.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area night or day.

“A must do when in London ”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

We had a few hours to spare before lunch in the oxo tower and went around 10.30 on a weds , the market wasn't too busy and we could stroll around taking the sights and smells in .. Amazing food , fresh and looking fabulous , we were eating at 1 so didn't try any food but there were mouthwatering food to be had so go if you are hungry really great atmosphere will go again but on an empty stomach and will try lots of different foods

“Love to be there!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Whenever I visit London I try to go there on a saturday morning. You can buy from various types of bread and cheese and make yourself a great sandwich, take a coffee and eat by the Thames. If you had your breakfast buy a falafel and then a gelato from Neil's Yard. If you love fruits you will have hard time to choose among the vendors and fruits:) even just to walk and watch the stalls worths visiting.

“Foodie paradise”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

I love going to the Borough Market. So many food to sample and buy, so little stomach space. Yum!

You can get fresh produce and artisan food. Beet of all is that they let you sample most of the produce without giving you funny looks. I love the cured meat, cheese, oil, freshly cooked scallops, paella, burgers, watermelon juice, freshly cooked truffle ravioli, and so much more.
