My Sunday Photo – Borough Market

Borough Market

There are definitely times when I’m guilty of not taking advantage of what’s right on my doorstep. To start correcting that, I set off for Borough Market last week in my lunchbreak to hunt down some gluten-free St Patrick’s Day themed cupcakes that I came across on Instagram.

Borough Market is wonderful and is no more than a 5 minute walk from my day job office. Despite that, I rarely pay a visit. I feel guilty of treating it like a tourist trap when there are so many other people already doing that, despite traders being there to try and make a living. Plus I don’t have the budget to shop there regularly, as much as I’d love to.

I think I’ll save up and maybe visit once a week for lunch or some weekend treats, it’s absolutely worth it.

    I popped in the other day and it’s lovely but miss the charm of the old market. I spent £27 on 4 doughnuts, 2 sticks (tiny) of olive bread and 2 small bits of cheese! It used to be a regular haunt but now that it’s been redeveloped I never go, I did enjoy it though. I also wondered how well the traders actually do there since so many people seemed to just be taking photos. It’s still a great place and we are so lucky to have it!

    Yes I totally agree in the old-world charm missing (don’t get me started – I was ranting the other day about how clean Soho and Picadilly Circus are now, so many of the places I used to party at in the early 2000s have disappeared to be replaced by Whole Foods and chains!! )
    It feels a bit chicken and egg with the whole tourist thing and raised prices at Borough – did Bridget Jones inadvertently sound the death knell of the old original market? That was probably the last time I remember it being ‘old’ and I think the tourists came and the prices went up.
    I do hope it stays though and I’ll try and get there once a week now to buy something decent instead of frittering it away at the likes of Costa and high street chains.
    Have you been to Maltby Street Market? Definitely worth a visit Xx

    What a great market. It looks so full of life and busy x

      It gets absolutely chaotic in the proper lunchtime rush, definitely best to try and get there either before or after! X

    Great Photo, I love borough market. I do hope it doesn’t get too commercialised too.
