Borough Market

Another market that we visited on our trip was the Borough Market, just south of London Bridge. I have read that there has been a market in this spot since the first century. Ponder that for a moment! The whole market is devoted to food, which makes it a food lover's paradise. We wandered and explored the many food stalls and bought and ate as we strolled about.

These photos don't begin to convey the wide variety of foods on offer. I would guess that whatever you have an urge for, you will be able to find it among these market stalls! Lots of samples to lure you over, including the amazing number of varities of powdered Turkish delight at one stall. We bought a small bag full of our favourites, so soft and fresh, with real flavours, no artificial flavourings. So good! But that wasn't all we sampled, there were the gigantic meringues (larger than your fist), German sausages on a bun, baguettes, beautifully designed cookies (like the elephant cinnamon cookies pictured here) and wonderful pastries.
