Borough Market

This summer, I celebrated my 4 years in London. And even though I’ve been here 4 years already, I have to admit I barely took the time to go to Borough Market.

Of course, I’ve been in the market before, during my student year in London a long time ago, or during my frequent visits over here, but I’ve never been interested much in exploring too much in details.

I kind of saw it as a place filled only with tourists, where small local producers weren’t that small and weren’t that locals, and a market that had nothing to do with the London vibe.

Well, I was wrong.

Clearly, it was time I went back and see it from a fresh eye.

Borough Market is now one of my favourites places in London and I’m going to explain you why.

As I was walking down the Southbank, about to take the tube at London Bridge, I though the day was gorgeous enough for an improvised stroll in Borough Market. The perfect day to give it an other chance. And I guess it worked pretty well.

Blue sky, empty market, it was a good day to go. And it did help to have a very enjoyable time.

The market was much bigger than I remembered. Colourful, varied, with stalls and products from the whole world, and particularly charming. I went around the first part, before exploring the second one, my favourite.

The pictures seem to really make justice to that lovely moment I spent in the market. Chilled, relaxed, full of light. The kind of simple moment I love.
