Borough Market is busy, noisy and bursting with wonderful produce. It’s best to come early and bring a large, strong bag or a shopping trolley. If you’re not familiar with the produce on the stalls, or you’re not sure how to cook it, just ask: the traders will be delighted to tell you about their specialities, where they come from and how to make the most of them. Look round carefully before you buy – the Market sells some expensive delicacies but there are also lots of delicious cheaper cuts of meat and good-value seasonal fish, vegetables and fruit.
The Market consists of four important areas:
* Crown Square, the area bounded by Southwark Street, Stoney Street and Bedale Street.
* The Green Market, the area beneath the railway bridges north east of Bedale Street beside the cathedral.
* The Jubilee Market, location of the 2006 Christmas Market.
* The shops and restaurants which surround the Market, located in Stoney Street, Park Street and Bedale Street.
Don’t miss any of them: Borough Market is rather a maze, but exploration yields delicious rewards!
