Borough Market is a real treat for foodies, packed with plenty of great reasons to pay a visit to this famous London venue. London is a famously outward looking city, and the produce on offer here is often just as impressively open and international. In this blog, we’ll take a quick look at some of the top reasons for foodie fans to take a look…
The Vast Selection of Cheese
Fan of cheese? Then Borough Market should definitely make the cut as a place to visit while you’re staying at the M by Montcalm. Neal’s Yard Dairy has a stall here, but you will also find an array of independent producers selling a wide range of delicious cheeses for all tastes. If you are fond of trying the latest flavours in dairy and manage to walk away without making a few purchases, it will be nothing short of a miracle.
Plentiful Fruit and Vegetables
Like any reputable food market, Borough Market specialises in plenty of yummy fruit and vegetables. Borough Market has a traditional range of fresh fruit and vegetables, perfect for getting a true taste of British produce close to any of our hotels in East London.
If you’re partial to a little seafood, then Borough Market is the place to be! There are lots of oysters in particular on offer here, as they are something of a local speciality. You can even eat them at the stalls with a little lemon and Tabasco sauce, for an authentic London market or street food experience.
Impressive Donut Range
Got a sweet tooth? Then there is still lots to enjoy at Borough Market, with stalls offering plenty of tasty treats including a wealth of donut options, perfect for grabbing on the go while you browse the city. If you’d rather just pick up a freshly baked loaf of bread, you’re also in luck – there are lots of stalls which sell both.
Cafes to Relax In
If all this browsing gets a little too much, there are plenty of cafes nearby where you can take a break. While staying at one of our romantic hotels in London you might be tempted to get hold of some local produce for a picnic, but you can also stop at a local café or hang on for a delicious dinner at the M By Montcalm later on.
Fragrant Coffee on Tap
Thought it was just food which Borough Market offered? Then think again! You can also get hold of a wide range of delicious coffees for both drinking while you explore the market, and for trying later on at home. A range of specialist tea merchants have stalls within the market, and will be more than happy to talk you through the different varieties to choose from, helping you find your perfect match. For caffeine fans, this is an experience like no other!
