This weekend was spent wandering around London’s many markets, not shopping, but tasting my way through the many food stalls.
I love exploring the different tastes of the city, and I’m constantly pinching my arm to make sure this is not a dream.
Since I’m lucky enough to live quite close to my favourite market, The Borough Market, I try to visit as often as possible, getting completely lost in all the wonderful smells, sounds and produce.
I have always been slightly obsessed with tomatoes. If I had to chose only one fruit or vegetable for the rest of my life, tomatoes would be it. Even so, I’ve found that you have tomatoes – and then you have tomatoes! Isn’t this just the most beautiful thing ever?
What I love most about the food stalls, is how they allow you to try different cuisines and be inspired by different parts of the world, all in one place.
At the Camden Lock Market I tried my first jerk chicken, whilst at Sunday (Up) Market it was all about arepas. The latter quite possibly my new food crush. The most shocking discovery however, was how completely wrongfully I have hated turkish delight all these years!
I’ve compiled my favourite markets on the map below, and if you follow the link under the picture, I’ve also included opening hours and directions how to easily get there.
