A Treat for Foodies - London's Borough Market

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!

I love the market's atmosphere! Set up under bridges and against a very industrial background, the market is always lively and offers you an amazing opportunity to discover as you make your way through the crowds and around various obstacles.
