Food, Glorious Food at Borough Market
South of the river, under an overpass lies Foodie Heaven. Open from Monday through Wednesday (limited selections/10-3) and Thursday through Saturdays (times vary), it holds something to delight every vegetarian, carnivore and sugar fiend.
Cheese! Cheese everywhere! Best of all, they let you sample before you buy…artisan cheese, organic cheese, imported cheese. Did I mention samples?
Lovely produce. I don’t know what to do with half of it, but I bought so much of it!
One of the things I enjoyed most about the market was how passionate and dedicated everyone was about their product. Every stall owner was willing to answer questions, offer samples and talk about everything they were selling. It was their enthusiasm that led me to try things I ordinarily wouldn’t, with one exception ( I’m talking about you, smiling whole-pig-head-in-the-refrigerator-case). Can’t make me. I’ll spare you the photo.
I can personally attest to the quality of these prize-winning pies.
I must recommend the cheesy delights of a grilled/toasted cheese at Kappacasein. Daughter #3 is quite the connoisseur of grilled cheese and made a beeline for the cart that promised raclette and other cheesy delectables. She was not disappointed, nor was I. We went back to the cart 3 times.
Make sure to wash it all down with some lovely cider.
Also, take the time to wander outside of the market proper to have a coffee (Monmouth’s perhaps?) and visit Neal’s Yard Dairy for excellent advice which cheese should accompany the lovely wine you picked out.
