I feel so lucky to be able to go to a place like Borough Market on my lunch break.
Borough Market is a big tourist destination market near London Bridge, but every foodie Londoner I know loves it as well.
It’s a huge market filled with stalls selling everything you can imagine, food related of course! On Thursday I went to the garlic stand and bought my parents a hot garlic pickle (as in British pickle, not pickles). It’s fantastic. I didn’t get many pictures because I spent so long waiting in line to get an iced espresso at one of the shops near the market.
On Friday I went with a friend from work and we thought it would be fun to have a dinner party using some vegetables from Borough Market that we’ve never heard of.
Look at all those tomatoes! I’m not a huge tomato fan, but this colorful display was definitely one of my favorites. I can’t wait to go again this week. I would go more often, but I always forget to take my camera and I can’t stand going there without being able to take tons of pictures.
If you ever come to London be sure to check this market out – there’s something for everyone and it’s a great place to pick up a quick lunch.
