What is Borough Market?
Borough Market has been in existence for over 1,000 years (fact!). Succoured by its iconic location at the foot of London Bridge, the market is one of London’s most enduring attractions. It originated from the efforts of medieval traders wanting to take advantage of the southern ports in Southwark and sell their wares to visiting travellers. Over the years, it came to specialise in food goods, with people using the market to sell livestock, grains, fruit and fish- all at prices that undercut the City’s. So, it’s no wonder that food is Borough Market’s kohinoor.
