Borough Market has everything from artisan cheeses, pastas, olive oils to home made jams and and sauces to food stalls selling almost every type of food imaginable. It's a little hard to stay too long at this time of year because its outdoor and so darn cold outside, but I couldn't tear myself away! I couldn't afford to buy much, but I got a lot of ideas (example: mushroom pate, made with tons of raw mushrooms and good olive oil and herbs).
Another fun fact? The British are very generous when it comes to samples. Almost every stand allowed you to sample their products (and duh, who am I to refuse?), without any pressure to make a decision and buy something. After sampling anything and everything we could get my hands on, Nayereh and I stopped for a nice, organic wheatgrass shot and then had an amazing lunch of halloumi burgers, made with shredded vegetables and soft, chewy Halloumi cheese. You could have it with a bun, but I opted for salad, and was pleseantly suprised to see they gave a little of several different types of salad including one with bulgar wheat, a beet salad, and a shredded carrot (how French!) salad. Amazing!
it was impossible to get a shot without people rushing by, but now you can see the hustle and bustle atmosphere of the market (a contrast to the mellowed out Nice markets)
