Borough Market.

Monday, October 19, 2015

When you're with a group of friends or you simply can't make up your mind about what type of cuisine you're craving, snacking your way through food market stalls is hard to beat. Borough Market is one of the biggest and best that London offers to suit just about any craving for breakfast, second breakfast, or lunch, and it's conveniently a hop and a skip away from the London Bridge tube station. 

Scents of offerings with local and far away origins float through the air and you can hear people excitedly remarking to their comrades about the duck confit sandwich they just had, shutterbugs squeeze their arm through the crowds to snap the perfect shot of a stack of football sized cookies, and vendors call out to offer you a free sample. You can spot everything from fresh fruit to octopus to cider. 

There's something for just about everyone, and I could spend hours weaving my way through the various rows and sampling as much as possible. The highlight of my nibbles from this particular morning was definitely the scotch egg I picked up from the Scotchtails stall. 

^^ The look of sheer, food-fuelled joy captured by my friend JD - go follow her on Instagram, you won't regret it!

After you've snacked enough for about 5 meals, you're in the perfect spot to walk across London Bridge north of the river for more mooching around the East London. Spitalfields is only a 30 minute trek away through the City, so you can knock out food, history, and shopping all in one Saturday!
