Borough Market, London

So other than Locanda Locatelli, this is the only other thing I wanted to do in London, not that the show and the shopping weren't fantastic but the food was the highlight of my trip!

Gorgeous mozzarella,and a GIANT chocolate stall, there were gorgeous chocolates and I bought some to bring home but they accidentally jumped into my mouth when I was on the tube!

I have to say we are SO deprived here in Ireland, there is NOTHING like Borough Market to my mind and the only markets that come close are the English Market in Cork and the ones on Saturday mornings in Galway and Limerick but there are just a fraction of what's available in Borough!

Mushrooms galore, the best brownies in the world, everything tomato

The food is A. MAZ. ING there is absolutely everything you could imagine available and I managed to sample a hot beef roll with freshly made mustard, the best organic chai tea I've EVER had, the BEST chocolate brownie in the world and a host of other cheeses and breads and dips and meats. I would have stayed all day and NEVER gotten bored but it was getting mental after 2 hours wandering so I left.

I have never seen birds in Ireland like this before even in a butchers and Baklava mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I only came home with pictures of the market and 3 other shots aswell, how bad is that like??? So take a gander and share in the wonder that is Borough Market

Cheese city baby, amazing spices , dried figs

I'm always so envious when watching Market Kitchen, what I would do for a fraction of this market!! The English Market is pretty good though!!

This market looks fantastic!! I love nothing more that browsing through a market looking at all the wonderful produce!! Wish the Coventry market was as good as this!
