We have been going to Borough Market since way back in November when we were brand new Londoners. Basically its a huge food market on the south bank of London, very close to London Bridge. Its only open Friday mornings and Saturdays. There are tons of food stalls - selling everything from produce to cheese, bread and fresh pastas, to lamb burgers and beers from around the world. You can find pretty much everything and anything you can think of.
Our favorite part (or one of them at least) of the market is a little cheese stand that sells two things - toasted cheese paninis and raclette (boiled potatoes with freshly melted cheese poured on top). Generally we start our trip to Borough with a cheese sandwich....for breakfast...and it only gets worse from there. Brian and I love food (probably a little TOO much) and we thoroughly enjoy finding new gems in the market - one weekend it was a blueberry muffin sent from heaven, this weekend it was a Black Velvet cupcake made with Guinness and cream cheese icing. They also have a specialty beer stand, which sells unique beers from around the world - including 3 brews from Brooklyn Brewery!
That being said - if you ever come to visit us and your stay involves a Saturday...expect to be taken to this little slice of heaven, called Borough Market.
