Borough Market
Point of Interest in Bermondsey
What Airbnb hosts say
This dazzling food market offers a vast array of artisanal munchables and difficult-to-find ingredients. The market is a delight for all the senses, and is best enjoyed with a big shopping bag and empty stomach when the crowds are at low ebb. To avoid the starving masses go first thing on Saturday mornings, from 8am or 9am, or from midday on Thursday or Friday. Don’t miss… Pork pies with chopped apple piled on top from Sillfield Farm, packets of Padrón peppers and tortas de aceite (handmade sweet olive oil biscuits with a hint of aniseed) from Brindisa, coconut drops from Burnt Sugar, elusive Mexican ingredients from the Cool Chile Company. Downside... Overpriced fruit and vegetables from the bigger fresh-produce suppliers. Refuel at... If the all-pervasive and irresistible aroma of sizzling meat doesn’t stop you in your tracks, make your way to Shellseekers for fried scallops and bacon. Otherwise join the queue at Brindisa for its legendary chorizo roll, or line up at Kappasein for a pricey (but pretty tasty) toasted cheese sandwich or raclette. For sit-down options, try breakfast at Roast, lunch at Tapas Brindisa or oysters and a pint of prawns at Wright Brothers. If you’re after something sweet, make your way to Real France in Jubilee Market (the extension to Borough) for crème caramel pots.
