Borough market.


Borough market was both beautiful and bountiful this weekend. The last produce of summer (ripe peaches, lychees, fat tomatoes and countless ears of corn) sat alongside autumn’s finest pumpkins, gnarly squashes, and rosy red apples.

In fact, almost everything on Saturday seemed to straddle both summer and autumn. The weather flip flopped between cool and blustery, and warm and stuffy. We stopped to buy some juices as soon as we got to the market, and could choose between watermelon (which tasted like summer in a mouthful), apple and ginger (so autumnal, and so delicious), and hot spiced apple (is anything more wintery than hot spiced apple?).

Nothing delights me more than the changing of the seasons. It’s one of my favourite things about living in England. You hearing how great England is Tania? You’d best come back from your year out in Oz, or else! ;)


^^ Those chicken gyoza were killer. I’d go back for more any day of the week. ^^

    Everything looks so delicious! I lived in London earlier this year and (for some reason) never went to Borough market! All of my friends thought I was crazy. This makes me wan to fly back to London ASAP!


  • Becca

    LOVE Borough Market. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I could literally not eat for an entire week and then just go and have something from every stall there. Nomnomnom.

    Epic photographs, by the way :) x

    Great photos! There are always great things to photograph in markets. Especially such rich color.

  • Alice

    I love the change of seasons- mostly because of all the exciting changes in seasonal produce! I’ve never made it to Borough Market though- next time I’m in London, I’m THERE! xx

    Beautiful beautiful photos lady! xxxx

  • Fiona

    Ahh I’m mouth watering looking at that gyoza, yum! There really is nothing quite like fresh produce, food always tastes better with it :) In my humble opinion anyway!

  • Shu

    Oh my, it’s 1AM and I’m craving a trip to Borough Market again. Food markets are my absolute favourite things to visit (and I’d rather bowls of lychees, chicken gyoza and spiced apple juice over clubbing any day). Beautiful post with even more beautiful photos! :) x

  • Lulu

    Rosie I LOVE Borough Market too!
    Nothing better than getting a loaf of bread, some cheese and a massive tub of olives and going to sit in the garden of Southwark Cathedral.
    And then having a massive chocolate brownie for dessert!

    Lovely post and beautiful photos! I love borough, brilliant street food and it is so nice to see it coming back to full strength after the last couple of years. Did you get a chance to go to Vineopolis whilst you were there? If you didn’t you should visit -brilliant wine shop and the Whiskey Emporium is something else!

    Oh, I think Borough Market may be one of my favourite places ever. Even if I don’t buy anything I just love wandering around. I’m looking forward to autumnal produce appearing too!

  • Rachel Burnham

    Ahhhh. What fantastic photos! THEY’RE ALL SO PRETTY.

    Everything looks amazing! I love Borough Market; I have very fond memories of a massive pyramid of utterly perfect brownies at one of the entrances. I had no shame in moaning with every mouthful of that brownie–it was awesome!
