Borough Market

Borough Market, the oldest in London, has been around since at least the 1200s, and sometimes it seems like some of the oddball characters running the stalls have been there the entire time. For centuries a straightforward farmer's market where folks from the countryside came into town to sell their wares, today the market has a decidedly gourmet air. You can find fancy cheeses, craft bakeries, and organic produce, as well as a number of upscale restaurants in the nearby streets.

The market is open Thursdays through Sundays (it's actually open the rest of the week too, but only for wholesale purchases).

Getting there

The closest Underground station is London Bridge. Signs point the way from the station to the market.
