The historical Borough Market is London's oldest market. Founded in the 11th century, it has sold produces and other assorted goods to locals and visitors for more than a millennium. The market is located on Southwark Street, just a stone's throw away from the London Bridge and many other popular sites.
In the present day, the market specialises in gourmet food items, including traditional English delicacies. However, visitors can also find homeware, plants and other goods. It also plays a part in the slow food movement through its emphasis on local products and handmade specialties.
The Market's layout reflects its rich history, with a warren of passageways and open spaces providing atmosphere and offering shoppers the thrill of new discoveries.
Three Crown Square, the Market's largest trading area, is devoted to produce, including fruit and veg, meat, fish and cheese, while the spaces around the periphery offer a colourful and eclectic blend of foodstuffs from all over the world.
