London’s Larder

By Linda Tancs

London’s Borough Market turns 1000 years old this year.  You’ve come a long way, baby–from grain, fish, vegetables and livestock trading in the 11th century to a premier market source for foodies like chefs, restaurateurs and amateur cooks.  Its original location is marked by The Triangle, a patch of land purchased by local residents when Parliament closed the market in the 1700s.  Now over 100 stalls strong, the facility is home to renowned producers like Northfield Farm and Furness Fish and Game.  The City’s oldest fruit and vegetable market, it’s located next to London Bridge station.  The full market is open Wednesday through Saturday.
