Borough Market London

Borough Market is London's oldest fruit and vegetable market, established in it's current location in Southwark during the 13th century. The market is still London's most renowned food market, with over a hundred traders participating, selling all kinds of food from all over the world.

The market was closed down by Parliament in 1755, but a group of Southwark residents came together to raise money and buy a small patch of land on which to reopen the market. This area of land is still at the centre of the market today.
