I spent a couple of hours wandering around Borough Market and the surrounding streets one afternoon last week experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of the market. It was busy too with tourists and office workers alike... and yes, perhaps I tasted one or two of the delights on offer!
The first thing that caught my eye were these greenest of olives:
The trader explained these are picked young so they’re not as bitter and then are only lightly cured, which means they don’t lose their colour so much. I couldn’t resist them and left carrying a small pot!
There’s many samples on offer throughout the Market, for me it was cheese next. The smell of cheese as you walk around is strong and you know when the next cheese stall is approaching, it’s great!
