A Tribute to Borough Market

Ever since I moved to London some 8 years ago and first stepped foot in Borough Market, I've referred to it as my favourite place in the city. I take every friend or relative who visits me there, whether they like it or not, and they never leave disappointed. It's the ultimate food lovers paradise, a booming and bustling hub of activity, with an incomparable energy. Visiting is a feast for the senses, with great towering wheels of parmesan piled up high, gleaming bottles of fragrant oil lining the stall shelves, and bountiful baskets of fresh seasonal produce beckoning you to buy. The traders are experts in their fields, and many of them have become my friends over the years. I can honestly say that it is a real community, and in this day and age that is something to be cherished.

With the wonderful news that Borough Market will be re-opening it's gates this Wednesday 14th June after the horror and sadness it has endured of late, I wanted to pay tribute to this special place in my own little way, by sharing some of my favourite shots that I've taken in my years of pottering around Borough Market. Some of these are taken on my DSLR camera, and some are just happy moments I've captured on my phone.

I hope that lots of you will join me in the coming weeks in visiting the Market, and filling up your shopping bags to show support to the Traders. Borough Market really is the most unique and wonderful treasure. It holds a huge place in my heart, and nothing will ever change that.
