THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 1ST JANUARY 2013
Nestled in-between Borough High Street, Bedale Street, Stoney Street and Winchester Walk lives "London's Larder", more formally known as Borough Market. This gourmand's delight is London's oldest food market and boasts a mouth-watering range of fresh food stalls under its Dickensian wrought-iron roof. Italian cheeses, Morecambe Bay shrimps, Spanish foods and much more. Atmospheric, lively and mouth-watering this foodie's paradise is a definite must - especially on a Saturday morning. Savvy shoppers take care to browse around for the best deals - just because it's a market doesn't mean it's cheap and some of the delicious goods can leave you feeling out of pocket. Do a little window shopping before you buy and you'll find there are plenty of goods to be had at reasonable prices. Make sure you leave plenty of time to shop around all four of the market's important areas:
1.) Crown Square, the area bounded by Southwark Street, Stoney Street and Bedale Street.
2.) The Green Market, the area beneath the railway bridges north east of Bedale Street beside the cathedral.
3.) The Jubilee Market, location of the Christmas Market.
4.) The shops and restaurants which surround the Market, located in Stoney Street, Park Street and Bedale Street.
