Last week-end I finally found Borough Market. I had been looking for it for quite a while when I finally asked a British friend to draw me a map (sometimes, it is better to just sit on your pride and ask for a drawing). I can not tell you how precious this little sketch was: the market is at a lower level than the road which means that if you don't know where to look for it, you can easily miss it. But I made it, and it was worth it!

"Borough Market is London’s most renowned food market; a source of exceptional British and international produce.
Since its renaissance as a retail market just over a decade ago, it has become a haven for anybody who cares about the quality and provenance of the food they eat - chefs, restaurateurs, passionate amateur cooks and people who just happen to love eating and drinking."
The Food is so fresh, the people are smiley, the ambiance is cheerful, it is a mix of business men grabing their lunch, tourists and londoners grocery shopping.

More pictures to come, stay tuned...
