afternoon at the Borough Market

i have only recently heard of this place, London’s oldest food market and where Britain’s finest food producers sell their wares.

the place is absolutely a foodie’s delight. we were sampling cheese and drinking mulled wine. looking with glee at the lobsters trying to crawl away. didn’t realised that prawns that big were available here. surprised that the mountain of bread we’ve seen just a few minutes ago quickly disappeared as people rush to buy them. fighting our way through the crowds was worth it seeing the endless choices of quality food straight from the producers. did get a bit disappointed at not being able to get a lobster though, as all the ones we’ve seen were a bit too big for a 2-person dinner and were worth £27 (and wondering how i would have the heart to broil them live).

we went home some 40 quid poorer and with only a carrier bagful of goodies. as a sign there says, your body is a rolls royce, you don’t feed it with cheap stuff (or something like that)! (£5 for wedge of cheese, £10 for 6 pieces of scallops, no definitely not cheap!)

now if only i can afford to shop there every weekend, i will never be seen back at tesco’s.
