Borough Market London

Borough Market – London’s oldest food market

Its origins date back from the time when the Romans built the London Bridge. And although it has moved from where it was originally established, the Borough Market has occupied its current site for the last 250 years making it London’s oldest market.

Business activity in the Borough Market begins at 02:00 for wholesale trading. If you can be up at that time of the day then perhaps you could get a good deal if you’re buying in bulk and volumes. Otherwise, you can go and grab a bargain or two during usual opening hours.

You can find both food and non-food items in this market but locals regularly go here to get fresh produce from various parts of the country. You can also find goodies from other countries here like mate, the national tea of Argentina. It’s also a great place to grab a bite to eat.

Borough Market is always heaving with people – locals and visitors alike. Tourists come here to get a feel of the local life. But even though it has become quite known to visitors, Borough Market will always be a Londoner’s market.
