A Treat for Foodies - London's Borough Market
For the past few years I've lived within walking distance of Toronto's St. Lawrence Market, which was recently named the top food market by National Geographic. I love food and find that markets are the best place to meet locals and learn about their culture by tasting local treats. Borough Market, in my opinion, tops the St. Lawrence Market in its selection of local and international ready-to-eat food. With the help of my wife and our family, we conquered much of the market and left extremely satisfied and a wee bit heavier. The trip to London was worth it just for this day!
