Borough Market started many hundreds of years ago; records show it was trading in fish, grain and cattle back in AD1014. It is the last remaining wholesale fruit and vegetable market still operating from its original site, adjacent to London Bridge.
In days gone by Borough Market was a hive of activity with live animals penned up and merchants from far and wide coming to trade their produce. Nowadays, you can experience a similar hive of activity but without the live animals! It now hosts a very successful fine food market every weekend with specialist farmers and producers travelling from all over the country to sell their wares at this first-rate market. It has gained quite a reputation amongst London's 'foodies', as well as top chefs, restaurateurs and food writers.
The market has won many accolades for the likes of Time Out, Evening Standard, the Observer and Visit London. As Friday and Saturday can become particularly busy with locals purchasing their groceries, many visitors choose to visit on non-market days to marvel at the Victorian railway structure and eat at one of the excellent surrounding restaurants. Alternatively, a number of stalls have started opening on a Thursday to provide a taste of Borough Market without the crowds.
