Borough Market is London's oldest and most celebrated food market. Situated just south of the Thames beside Southwark Cathedral, under a railway viaduct, it is home to British and international traders selling the finest of speciality produce: meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, cheeses, breads, confectionery, spices... Enjoying a renaissance since the 1990s, it has been championed by some famous TV chefs and several movies have had scenes filmed here, including 'Bridget Jones's Diary'. We had a wonderful time browsing and trying some of the various foodstuffs on offer. I bought some beautiful Comté cheese, a firm French variety that is wonderfully creamy, with a nutty, earthy flavour.
