Situated on Southwark Street and Borough High Street, you can easily reach this place using public transportation such as Subway or Bus. If you are using underground, it’s located very near from London Bridge Station which is serviced by the Jubilee and Northern Lines.

You can find various fresh produce such as fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, cheeses along with cooked items such as bread, cakes, patisseries, ice cream, paella, coffee, etc. The best days to visit Borough Market would be from Wednesday to Saturday because you get the whole experience of the full market while on Monday and Tuesday you can find hot food traders, and fruit and vegetable stalls.

Right in front of the market’s entrance, you can find Neal’s Yard Daily, a cheese specialty store where you can buy finest British cheeses that are carefully selected from cheesemakers from UK and Ireland.

Inside Borough Market, you can find a stall called Scotch Tails that is specialized in Scotch Egg, a signature and popular dish in United Kingdom made from deep fried sausage meat with boiled egg inside.

The Scotch Egg by Scotch Tails is served with salad, it costs GBP 4.50 plus GBP 2.40 for additional Sweet Potato Fries. Love the balsamic seasoning in the salad, meat was tender while the egg was unfortunately a bit over cooked, it was still creamy and soft but not as runny as the display but on the other side I was very happy with my decision to order the sweet potato fries because it was so so soooo good, one of the best I’ve ever had. Amazing crunch on the outside while soft fluffy inside, sweet yet salty in each bite.

Overall, Borough Market is indeed a true heaven for food lovers, one of the must visit places for every foodie I must say. This place offers more than just the food, Borough market is also about the people, place and community. It’s a great place to see and experience food scene of London.
