More images from Borough Market, with a bit of commentary for you!
Gotta love their version of a “you are here” map.
Indoor shot of the permanent part of the market. Saturdays, as you can tell, are pretty busy. And this was at about 3 p.m., so who knows how many there were earlier that day!
Outdoor sections of the market.
You can get cheese at more places in Borough Market than just Neal’s Yard Dairy! Mmm gouda.
The variety available at this market is just outstanding. Look at all the sausages!
Lots of mushrooms.
More than enough Turkish delight to please any sweet tooth.
Foie gras and meat pies – they were giving away tasting samples of rabbit terrine when I was there.
Built around 1220, Southwark Cathedral is right next to Borough Market and is the oldest Gothic church in London. It is a working church where you can take a tour or attend a service. If you don’t feel like tackling one of the giant churches in London like Westminster Abbey, then this place is a great way to get a taste of the architecture and monuments that are in the bigger places. I’m told that they have pretty good scones and tea in their café as well, although I did not get a chance to try it myself.
Directional signs at the market.
Northfield Farm butchery – can you see the pig in the cooler?
Lineup at the fishmongers.
The Ginger Pig – a well known butcher in the market. It was getting late and all their food was sold out or put away already at this point.
And lastly, a sign that would catch anyone’s eye.
Edited to add: Made a close up photo of the pig as per requested in the comments. 🙂
