A Postcard from Borough Market

Borough Market in London has existed at least since 1014 "and probably much earlier than that" near the southern end of London Bridge.

The morning started out foggy, but then what is London without a bit of fog? By lunchtime the sun had come out on another beautiful, warm day. The market was busy with shoppers and lunchtime diners and I'm sure no one went away disappointed with the great variety of food on offer.

Obviously I still need some work on my selfie technique, but you can sort of see that I enjoyed my wild mushroom and asparagus in wine sauce pie.


Doesn't it look like these workers from another time were looking at the shoppers today and wondering what in the world was going on?



  1. Intriguing sea food stall - I'd be giving the octopus a wide berth.
    The pie is a newy to me - vegetarian???
    Great shots - nah forget the "selfies" !
    Cheers and continue to have fun.

  2. Cynthia you have ha a great time there. Interesting post oof the site and very long history.

  3. Cynthia, looks like they were all posing for the camera, some shopper back in the day getting a good shot of the farmers and workers. Looks like fun....love those outdoor markets.

  4. It's a great shot of the fish market. I agree fog is so atmospheric. Glad you enjoyed the pie and your time in England so far.

  5. Nice tour of the venerable market!

  6. Glad you are enjoying your trip. Fog is part and parcel of the weather in England, it does take a bit of getting used to.

  7. You sound as if you are indeed having a ball :)

  8. That pie sounds scrumptious! Keep on with the selfies - we like to see you too!

  9. You have a great time with trying all the different food.

  10. I hope you bought some oysters from the fish stall.
