This weekend, instead of jetting off to another country, I decided to stay in London and do a little exploring. There is so much to do in London, but there is nothing like spending a Saturday afternoon at the Borough Market. The market is a short train ride away from my accommodation and was easy to find. Booths and vendors are located inside a covered pavilion, so even the rainy London weather couldn’t put a damper on the market atmosphere.
It was packed with people and lots of good food. I swear they had any kind of food you could possibly need or want. Oh and samples galore! Bread, pasta, fish, fruit, vegetables, meat, game bird, oils and vinaigrette, cheese, ice cream, fresh squeezed juices — they have it all! Always come to the market with a big appetite because you are sure to find something to satisfy your craving. For me, I was craving the most American food I could possibly find — burgers and donuts — and Borough Market did not disappoint. The burger was cooked to perfection and the vendor even had Heinz ketchup to make it all the more American.
After the burger I was in the mood for something sweet and I spotted a bunch of people carrying around these cream-filled donuts. They looked amazing and I just had to have one! It was a fried-dough-and-raspberry-filled-slice-of-goodness that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Once I was finished stuffing my face, I returned home with a satisfied stomach and a happy memory of Borough Market. It was definitely worth the trip!
Lunch and dessert … so good!
