So, it’s been nearly six months since I’ve lived in London, and I hadn’t yet gone to the famous Borough Market… until last Friday. I went from my friends’ house in Hackney to London Bridge station and had a little walk until I hit the market.
I took photos. Want to see some?
You’re probably wondering if I bought anything while I was there. I actually didn’t poke around that much, since I didn’t really have much of a shopping list, but I did buy a little loaf of London Bloomer from Flour Power City Bakery, and some amazing jam and pear butter. PEAR BUTTER!! Haven’t tried the pear butter yet, but the bramble & apple jam I had gotten is delicious… and nearly gone.
I also bought a spinach and goat cheese tart to eat there. At £2, it was a fair price to pay, and quite delicious. Next time, though, I’ll hop in the queue for a veggie burger at the vegan burger stall I had seen as I was waiting for my tart to heat up.
All in all, a nice little morning trip. Well, really it was past noon when I got there, because it took me so long to get out of the house. It was a bit crowded, though not unmanageable, especially if you’re used to the crowds at Broadway Market. At least it was all right when I went. I’ll have to go again on another Friday morning or afternoon sometime.
