Wondering what to do this weekend? While hundreds of thousands will be gathering at the Notting Hill Carnival (which is worth checking out) why not head to Borough Market, London's oldest food market (and perhaps it's best!). The market, which dates back 250 years, is a food lover's heaven!
You can find virtually anything at Borough Market. There's quality homegrown vegetables and fruit. Plus cupcakes, chocolate, puddings, meat, poultry and oh, so much more (like plants, flowers, herbs, etc, etc, etc....). Grab a sausage, burger or fishcakes for lunch and top it off with a generous Aunt Alice pudding. This is one event the whole family will love.
Happy Bank Holiday!
Thurs, 11-5, Fri, 12-6, Sat, 9-4
Nearest Tube: London Bridge (Jubilee and Northern lines)
