London: Borough Market

Lucious Fruit at Borough Market
Originally uploaded by Hells Bells.

Even with the terrible bombings last week I’m still glad to be living in London. When I catch a bus across the Bridge to Waterloo and look along the river at the beautiful Westminster Buildings and London Eye and St Paul’s I sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure its real and not just a movie set.

There is always something to do here and usually too much to chose from. Last weekend on Suze’s last day here we went to check out the Borough markets at Bermondsy near London Bridge. The organic food available is amazing – I bought some huge juicy peaches for £1.50 and some chocolate brownie for balance. There are also lots of great cafes and pubs on the fringes of the market. I’ll definitely be going back.

I would love to live near markets, so I could walk around shopping for fresh produce. Here we have a Woolworths supermarket with who knows how old the fruit and vegetables are and now a new fruit shop which seems to think because we are in a tourist area we can afford over the top prices.
