I went for a trip to Borough Market
today. This market is just nestled underneath the railway arches near London Bridge Station.
I remember growing these Noir du Crimee
tomatoes last year, otherwise known as Black Krim
. (Krim = Crimea)You can get all sorts of everything at Borough Market.
I just love wandering around here, the produce is first class. The rule of thumb here is that if you don't produce the product yourself, you can't sell it at Borough Market.
so the butchers, fishmongers, bakers, cheesemakers or ostrich farmers have to have produced it themselves.
I wonder if someone nabbed this wild garlic out of a hedgerow somewhere? I hear it makes a tasty addition to stir fries!
A scarey looking monkfish on the fish counter!
Just over the road from the market is Neals Yard Dairy
, the most wonderful cheese shop!
Staff in the shop know their stuff. They are happy to give you samples if you look hungry, or if you look as if you might buy. I had lots of free samples!
Bought a big hunk of Stinking Bishop
and a strong and very ripe camembert that was virtually escaping from the packet! We sat outside Southwark Cathedral in the sunshine at lunch time and enjoyed a loaf of rustic French Bread and a runny camembert! Bon Appetite!
