Borough Market

Borough Market is one of those places I could just lose myself in. The ingredients you can buy.. oh it makes me weak at the knees. The varieties of cheese & bread, the colourful fruits & vegetables (including purple cauliflower!), the smells, the mushrooms, the oils, the whole damn thing appeals to me. Such a sucker. Not to mention the Borough Kitchen shop. I just had to buy a wooden serving board. I had to.

You can’t really go wrong with this market, honestly. If you’re buying fresh ingredients to cook at home, picking something up from one of the stalls, or popping into one of the permanent establishments you know you are in for a treat. The pubs and bars are also not to be missed, so make sure to pop by the Wheatsheaf or the Market Porter for a drink or two.

I love the amazing range of things you can get. You can pop into one stall and get some infused olive oil, go to another for a wheatgrass shot, down it with an oyster, and top it all off with some white sangria!

The options are endless. If you’re a so-called foodie, you’ll never get bored here. I was like a child let loose in Disney World.Borough via Teffy's Perks Borough via Teffy's Perks Borough via Teffy's Perks

I tried my first wheatgrass shot ever! I thought I was being brave and just had the plain ol’ shot. With nothing added. No fruit, nada. Eurgh, it tasted disgusting. Matt on the other hand was a clever little bee and had a smoothie-type drink.

His was delicious, couldn’t even taste the icky wheatgrass. Being the loving boyfriend that he is (and the fact I didn’t really give him a choice), he shared his with me. Definitely following in his footsteps next time. Borough via Teffy's Perks

Also, make sure to keep an eye out for their demonstration kitchen. It’s a pop-up that a legit chef cooks a specific meal in front of you.

While we were there we got to see how to cut and prepare squid. Told ya you’d never get bored there..

    I love Borough Market! Best bits are the raclette stall and also the brownies – to die for!! Xx

    • cheese and chocolate are definitely a weakness of mine X

  • Borough Market sounds awesome! I love the sangria set up…. I’d have to get a drink of that for sure. I’ve never tried wheatgrass shots, but thank for the heads up— I’ll get it in a smoothie if I ever decide to go for one!

    I squealed when I saw this. I have three places on my MUST VISIT list for when I’m in London for the next few months – Harry Potter Studio Tour, Kensington Palace for tea, and Borough Market hahaha. Do you have a favorite grilled cheese stand?!
