Borough Market is London’s oldest food market. It has been in its current location for 250 years. It is a wholesale fruit and vegetable market most of the time and a retail market 3 days of the week.
It is a noisy, bustling market with lots of fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and meats. Lots of cooked foods are also available. Come hungry as you will be tempted by many items. Take the Tube to London Bridge Station.
Tapas Brindisa serves up great Chorizo (£3.60) sandwiches. They are known for their specialty Spanish food and tapas restaurant.
Proper Fish & Chips had some very good fish and chips.
Northfield Farm Goat burgers (£5.50) were hot off the grill and tasty especially with their special bacon.

Big batch of Paella. It smelled great.
Strasberry – Strawberry, Rasberry combination. (£3.80 a punnet) Perfect for ice cream and flans.
Beautiful tiny little Magic Cakes. (£2.95)
clean bean 5 spice tofu was some of the best Tofu we have ever tasted. Organic soya beans, traditional techniques. The guy lived in China for a while. Shocking but true.
A way to work off all those calories afterwards is take a walk along the South Bank of the Thames river. You will pass street performers, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, Tate Modern, and London Eye.
