The Borough Market is beneath the railway and the viaduct; between the river Thames and Borough High Street.
According to historians, the market existed since 1014 and has been in its current location since the 13th century. Borough is the oldest fruit and vegetable market in London.
About 130 traders operate in the market, ranging from cheese makers from France and Italy, to food artisans from Buenos Aires and the Grenadines, to a Galician purveyor of high-end food products. In addition to the traders, the market is home to several cafes, restaurants and wine bars.
The market employs food-quality experts to ensure the tastiest food and to qualify the products’ authenticity. Most of the vendors display posters of where their farms are located and how they tend to their products and livestock.
It’s best to visit the market hungry as vendors generously offer free samples. For navigational purposes, the market is divided into three main areas: Jubilee, Middle Market and Green Market.Tartufaia Truffles (Jubilee Market) — Marike was on a mission to find truffle honey, a treat she and her husband have been addicted to since a friend introduced them to this delicacy. Tartufaia is the location for the incredible truffle honey and oils from Acqulagna in the Marche region of Italy.
