A visit to Borough Market

Borough Market is one of the most beautiful food markets in London. Beautiful and diverse, you can find anything your heart pleases and anything your stomach craves. Borough Market is big, actually it's one of the largest of its kind in Europe. We spent Friday there with my dad who is visiting and I took some "pretty" pictures, some pictures of pretty food and flowers. I love the vibe of food markets, don't you?

  1. I absolutely loved visiting Borough Market during our recent trip to London. I posted some very similar pictures on my blog. Borough Market and The Easton were my two favorite places in London.

  16. I love the variety at this market. I wish I had gone to more markets when I had lived in London. I, especially, like all the different type of mushrooms you can get.

    Lovely photos!

  35. This was hands-down my favorite place in London!! I tell anyone and everyone who is going that they have to visit.

    Oddly enough, I just came over to your blog for the first time via Sogni and scrolled to the bottom to see if it said who designed your header (which I love) then I saw the hydrangeas.. so I slowly started scrolling up. Lavender. Carrots. Beautiful flowers. I'm thinking to myself "I want to go there!" then I see the header: Borough Market. I literally let out a cheesy sigh Marilyn Monroe style. Love this!
