First mentioned in 1276 and believed to have existed in Roman times, Borough Market in Southwark on the South Bank is a firm favorite with tourists, chefs, and foodies alike. Open Monday to Thursday (10–5), Friday (10–6), and Saturday (8–5), this Dickensian location under moody Victorian wrought-iron railway arches at London Bridge is packed with google-eyed food lovers eager to pick up the finest and freshest fruit, vegetables, and grub in town. There are more than 135 stalls, plus a bunch of nearby pubs, bars, restaurants, and specialty shops, like Neal's Yard Diary (6 Park St.), where you’ll be bowled over by the great mountains of stinky blue Stilton cheese stacked floor to ceiling. Ever more groovy new eateries are springing up in nearby Bermondsey Street, just south of The Shard.
