fruit and vegetable market spreads out in an L-shape beneath
the railway tracks running into London Bridge.
Borough Market is
the successor to a medieval market, held on London Bridge.
In 1276 the market was moved to Borough High Street to avoid
congestion and was moved again in 1756 for the same reason.
The buildings of its present location date from 1851.
the area has given a new lease of life by the weekly Saturday
food market held here. Stalls include the Monmouth Coffee
Company, de Gustibus and the Fresh Olive Company.
Nearby are the
'Neal's Yard Dairy', selling British and Irish farmhouse cheeses,
the acclaimed 'fish', beside the restaurant of the same name,
and Konditor & Cook, the bakers.
