A feast for epicurean and foodies. Great selection of cheeses, game meat, sausages, ham, fresh produce, fruits, olive oil, vinegars, seafood, etc. Quite an experience.

What a fantastic place to visit if you get the chance while in London, 5 minutes from London Bridge tube station. The variety of market stalls together with street food gives you such a variety of food, fruit and veg, it will make your head ache trying to decide what to eat.

My wife and I visited here on Saturday, which was a beautiful bright day.
We arrived here from the London Eye by taxi, but there's two tube stations nearby - Borough and London Bridge.
The Borough Market is easy to find off the main street by the Thames.
It's an undercover market under a railway bridge and is uniquely set - which gives it an old fashioned feel.
However, everything sold here is top class. There fresh fruit, bread, pastries of many different types - some of which I have never seen or tasted. Some give out tasting plates.
You can find a garlic stall here with 15 different varieties - spices from all over the world. Lots of seasonal vegetables. Olive oil in varying grades and sizes to take away.
My favourite area was the freshly cooked stalls offering an amazing array of world wide platters ready to eat - some hot, some cold. Therefore, be prepared to eat and buy food here for your larder and fridge.
All of it looks well managed, clean and is priced correctly.
Take some time to look around the market in the side streets where you will find other shops to suit most tastes. Plenty of places to grab a coffee or tea and have a sit down.
Well worth a visit and I would return. People here were very pleasant.
Expect to stay over an hour in this area of the south bank.
Thank you to the community of Borough Market - it is obvious you work very hard to provide a good source of products and friendly service!

This was my first time at Borough Market, and what a treat! The great selection and variety of fruits, vegetables, cheese, meats - what a sight to behold. Then, team that up with the stalls selling a wonderful variety of prepared food for eating. What a great combination and a lovely way to pass the day. For me, the only thing missing would have been some good music, but oh well...
I got there by tube, getting off at the the London Bridge stop on the Jubilee line. This stop is right outside the market, so very handy. The day I was there was a beautiful, sunny day, but this event is also a great one to consider in inclement weather, as the market is fully covered, with tall overhead roofing to protect you from the elements. Note that the selections include some very nice grades of choices, noting the truffle stall, and the mushroom pate stall, the wide selection of cheeses and special meats, as examples. Excellent!

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.
