We're back from our London vacation, a little jet lagged but safe & sound. It was such a wonderful trip. I feel like everything on this trip just went our way, warm sunny weather, upgraded seats on flights, an upgraded hotel room & great people. We ate a lot of really good food but the markets & food halls really made us wish we had a kitchen to go back to & use all the amazing ingredients we saw.
Our first day in London was a Friday & we spent the afternoon at Borough Market. Borough Market is London's oldest food market.
It was established on the south bank of the Thames when the Romans built the first London Bridge. It has occupied its present site for 250 years.
Today it continues as the largest market in London with an amazing array of fresh produce, cheese, meats & baked goods. As well as buying things to take home, you can eat your way through the markets various take away stands.
(this was the best toasted cheese!)
While there we also stopped in at Neal's Yard Dairy, a cheese lover's paradise.
