Borough Market

Visiting an outdoor market is one of my favorite things to do in a foreign city (after visiting the local bakeries and chocolatiers, bien sur). Before leaving London this weekend, I made it to Borough Market on the South Bank. Sure enough, this huge and historic market has it all.

Fish…


Veg…


And plenty of of sweets...



In fact, forget whoopie pies, macarons and cupcakes. Brownies are the most ubiquitous sweet in London...


Neighboring streets and alleys are also devoted to food.


Monmouth Coffee has the most insane following.

And then there’s the heavenly Neal’s Yard Dairy.


If only I'd had a picnic to pack or a dinner to cook, if only I wasn't coming off a week of straight gluttony, I might have taken one of everything.

    I had a dream last night that I stomped on a fish that looked kinda like the one in your photo. (Dream interpretation welcome...)
