The Big Gay Al's Food Adventures
Borough Market is a wonderful part of london, especially for anyone with a passion for food like myself. It is an easy place to spend a few hours getting lost in the maze of restaurants, bars and stalls. Wondering from stall to stall, tasting here, talking to a food producer there, and filling a bag with tasty produce at the same time. The market is renowned for its focus on fresh, quality foods, in many cases being sold direct from the producer. If buzzwords like slowfood, provenance and Farm-to-table mean anything to you then you will love this place. There are a wide range of stalls selling fruit, vegetables, spices, meats, cheeses etc from all over the UK and indeed all over the world.
The traders and restauranteers at Borough are more than a bunch of food and drink businesses, they are a very close knit community, like family. Recent events have brought them closer to each other and the local community. Already they have been raising funds for charities such as the Red Cross UK Solidarity Fund.
So, I shall be making a point of going along to Borough Market in the next week or so so offer my support, spend some money, enjoy some fantastic food, and show that #LondonIsOpen and that I #LoveBorough – won’t you join me?
