Borough Market

One the oldest and best markets in the world is Borough Market. It is off the London Bridge tube stop, on the south bank of the Thames.
The market is nestled near the Southwark Cathedral. People can relax on the lawn and enjoy their goodies.
A trip to the market is always a treat for me!
The green market is the place to find fresh veggies of all kinds.









You can find fresh fish, meats, and sausages.
Beautiful fresh flowers.
Even Mum's apple pie!

The one thing I noticed... No WhistleStop Products at this market!

Maybe we need to work on that~ Sandi

I love the markets in Europe - they are a real place, and visiting them is an event. We don't have many here - too many of our greenmarkets in NY happen in parking lots, although that's better than no greenmarket at all!

These pictures make me so homesick for London...I've been in the market many times. Someone asked me if I had the opportunity would I move back to England...all I can say is, when do we leave?

Vonda said...

Wow Sandi, you were on my side of the world!!! So glad you had such a great time in London...isn't it an awesome place!!! Thanks for the aprons. I love them and looking forward to seeing the reaction when my "Southern Hospitality" basket is auctioned off. -Vonda

I'm with you Sandi. That market needs some fried green tomatoes.

Gigi~ Now I am going to be 'exciting and fun' right here in Alabama
Ally~ I can just take you along
TW~ Isn't that the truth! The difference is that people rely on these markets instead of walmart produce=D
Sandi~ I have thought of you with each London post... bored yet?
Vonda~ I am glad you got the aprons! Enjoy.
MaryAnn~ maybe I need to be the contact person and deliver them myself

Oh, I just love the sign "Mum's apple pies." Great shots!

I love going to the fresh markets in Europe. This is mu hubby's favorite thing to do since we are in the fresh fruit and veggie biz. It realy is fun. Thanks for sharing.

Gosh look at all the goodies. It would be hard to choose and the flowers were beautiful.

Sandi McBride said...

Never bored with England you silly goose! Many past lives spent there of that I am certain!

Sally said...

Look at those artichokes! I would kill for one of those! God - the crap they sell at Hy-Vee never looked so good. It would be so cool to be able to shop at that market every week.

Have a wonderful weekend, Sandi!

Sally said...

I don't know about you Shabby, but artichokes don't grow too good here in Iowa. Unless you count Jeruselem artichokes! LOL
