Borough Market

Just next to the Southwark Cathedral and south of London Bridge is the present-day Borough Market, whose first location supposedly existed since Roman times. Today it is one of London’s largest food markets with wholesale and retail hours.

It took me a couple of rounds to see all the vendors before I decided to try one of these omelettes with a fresh baguette…

accompanied by a fresh cup of orange and mango juice:

I did what the locals did and found myself a spot on the curb:

For round 2 (later in the day after a brisk walk around the bridges), I decided to taste one of the many salty pies:

I would have liked to have tried the one called “Kate & Wills pie”

but opted for the vegetarian “Wildshroom & Asparagus” instead,

which I enjoyed under the cool sun in the church’s courtyard with the rest of the crowd:

I saw a few sweet treats and adorable plates on my stroll out of the market…

but it was the “buy one get one free” sign at this artisan bakery Degustibus’ table that I couldn’t resist:

I can never say no to a fresh loaf of bread with raisins and nuts in it :D:
