Borough Market

Think of taking Tiger Woods to a whore house, he won’t stop until he falls over from exhaustion, dehydration, or over-enthusiasm. All three symptoms are warning signs of patrons of Borough Market. Most people walk around glassy eyed with bellies bulging as they race from chorizo sandwiches to fresh made curries and toasted raclette on boiled potatoes. There is also the endless supply of vendors/farmers selling everything from cheeses, produce, chocolates, pies and cider, to bags of hooves from the black footed Spanish iberico pig (delicious, and a steal at £10 / bag.

Yes, this market is overrun by tourists, but if you ask any Londoner they will tell you that eating a chorizo sandwich is equivalent to seeing the pyramids or the astrodome – once in a lifetime experience. You’ll wait in a long line ‘Queue’ and watch as other addicts finish and desperately lick every drop of chorizo fat from their fingers. This is what a market should be, people coming not just to support local farmers and businesses, but a chance to eat, drink, and enjoy the company of your fellow heathens.
