To market, to market…. Remember that Alastair and I went to the UK last year in September? No? Well, that’s because it felt like a million years ago! I barely remember it myself!
On our last day in London, I gave Alastair a reprieve from hanging out with me and my folks. He headed off to the Science Museum (which I admit is pretty rad) while I took mum and dad to Borough Market. Here are some piccy pics from the market. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this is an indulgent, photo heavy post. 🙂
Mhmmm pork pies.
There’ll also be a follow up post to this… photos from markets we visited in Japan. I find the differences in the food and presentation really interesting.
Do people still drink wheatgrass?
Oh, the pastries.
And the cheese! We bought a small wedge of this one to eat for lunch.
Truffles! I was so tempted to buy a truffle… but we were leaving for Wales the next day, so I wouldn’t have had any occasion to use it.
I settled on some smoked sausage thingies for our lunch instead. It wasn’t the same.
More cheese… we did buy another wedge of a different cheese for lunch as well. There were so many stalls selling cheese – and they gave out samples. Love it.
Don’t they look a bit like they’re lined up to sing a song? Lalalala.
We bypassed the oysters… I was tempted though!
And a bit of cake to finish. Stay tuned for Part 2!
