I used to live in London Bridge for a year of my student life, approximately a 5-minute walk from Borough Market (just call me Bridget Jones!) and I frequently walked through the market to get to Nandos, but never really explored the market properly. Sometimes I don’t think we fully appreciate where we live or our surroundings when we’re younger!
So after having watched the new Bridget Jones movie (a must see if you haven’t already!), I decided to head back to my student area and check it out properly. I spend the afternoon walking around the stalls, sampling balsamic vinegars and learning about the different types of mushrooms there are. A very different way to how I used to spend my afternoons as a student – probably napping!
Borough market is a foodie’s dream – you can try many different types of meat, for you meat-eaters and for us veggies there are plenty of fresh bread, cheese and funky veggies to keep us happy. It’s just an added bonus that during this time of year, many of the vendors are selling various squashes, gourds and pumpkins, which is bound to make you feel all the autumn feels!
