Borough Market

Get tips from traders and browse the artisanal food and healthy smoothies packing the stalls of this London stalwart that dates back more than 1,000 years.

In the shadows of The Shard’s glassy tower and Southwark Cathedral, Borough Market is one of the most popular and historic food bazaars in London. Traditional vendors display local produce, exotic ingredients and trendy fusions beneath a glass roof that shelters the market’s iconic green arches and poles. Chat with traders and other market-goers about their culinary tips in the lanes of this active market. 

Purchase fresh fish and meats or check out the many vegan stalls. Fresh yogurts and smoothies encourage a healthy diet, while traditional cheeses and other farm products remain at the market’s heart. 

Relax on a stool and choose between wine, coffee and juice as you watch people go by. Find olives, bread and sushi among other treats in this gastronomical labyrinth. 

Meet friends for lunch at one of the small restaurants carved into the warehouse. Charming shops display a range of exotic products and handicrafts. Listen to vendors talk about the site’s participation in the global Slow Food movement, focusing on using local produce and causing minimal environmental impact.

Attend some of the many events that take place here year-round. These include festivals, talks by teachers and food writers and cooking demonstrations by renowned chefs. The market has a long history, having celebrated its millennial anniversary in 2014. It experienced a revival in the 1990s, with rising public interest in healthy and artisanal food.  

Expect the market to be open Monday through Saturday from morning until late afternoon. In December, it also opens on Sundays. Find recipes and food-related articles on the bazaar’s official website, where you can also reserve a market food tour.

Borough Market is on the southern flank of the River Thames, a little east of the lively South Bank district in central London. Ride the Tube to London Bridge on the eastern side of the market. Make sure to visit nearby sights, such as the Golden Hinde, Shakespeare’s Globe and the HMS Belfast.
