The Borough Market!!

Recently, some friends and I headed south of the river to explore the Borough Markets! Before I left for London, it seemed like every travel site I went to suggested going here! So, I was very curious to see what all the fuss was about. 

SAMPLES! So many samples...'the Costco of London' as I have been referring to it! Almost every booth was giving out a little taste of what they were serving and/or selling. Some of the best were sheep's cheese, mash, and a lemon curd! 

There were booths selling everything! Meat, fish, fruit, cheese, jams, nuts, pastries, bread...I mean everything!! Plus, you could buy take-away food too! Indian, Asian, Italian, British, etc. 

Honestly, I now understand why everyone loves it here! The relaxed feel was a very cool change of pace and atmosphere compared to the rest of London. It was crowded but didn't seemed as cramped as the Camden Markets. Plus, the vendors were extremely friendly and happy to give you suggestions on what to buy!
