A Foodie's Guide to Borough Market

A Foodie's Guide to Borough Market

Living in the heart of London places you on the doorstep of the city's fascinating history, cultural hotspots, and outstanding food scene. 

One of London's most prominent food hubs, Borough Market, has become a bustling cultural attraction high on the hitlist of residents and tourists alike. Here, people flock to eat, drink and socialise with a choice of over 100 stalls, offering everything from freshly baked breads to world-class cold meat collections and natural wines.  

Its proximity to the soon-to-be-launched one, two, and three bedroom apartments in dynamic Southwark is just one perk of living in the area. Ideally located for commuters and those who thrive being close to the action, our New Kent Row homes are suited to young professionals looking to get on the property ladder without leaving the excitement of central London behind. 

Our top picks for your food tour of Borough Market: 

First stop, Bread Ahead. As well as artisan breads made with a commitment to traditional baking techniques, Bread Ahead is known for pillowy doughnuts filled with indulgent, homemade custard of delicious flavours like praline, honeycomb and their signature vanilla. A visit to Borough Market isn't complete without treating yourself to one, and you can even sign up for a baking class at their bakery school to perfect your own.  


Next, we have Brindisa. This Spanish food importer has been a staple at Borough Market for over 30 years, offering a true taste of Spain right in the heart of London. From Iberico ham to Manchego cheese and quality chorizo, it's a place where all the traditional Spanish flavours come alive. Pop by to pick up ingredients for a Spanish feast, or grab a bite (the chorizo roll is a firm favourite) and a glass of wine at their onsite tapas bar.  

Known for its irresistible grilled cheese sandwiches (named one of London's top 10 street foods) and Swiss-style raclette, where cheese is melted and scraped onto potatoes and pickles, Kappacasein is the go-to for cheese lovers...which probably relates to most of us. Their cheese is locally sourced, melted to perfection and served piping hot for that ultimate comfort food experience that's not to be missed. 

At The Ginger Pig, you’ll find some of the finest meats in the city. This butcher shop specialising in rare breed meats that are locally sourced where possible, works closely with a small group of farmers who share their values on ethical production. Every product is a testament to the traditional methods of rearing and butchering, and offerings include a range of delicious handmade pies, sausages and top-notch ready meals. 

Greedy Goat    

Finally, we sweeten the deal with The Greedy Goat, an ice cream shop with a twist. This charming little spot offers homemade ice cream made from goat's milk. Expect the classics like vanilla and chocolate as well as deliciously unique flavours like beetroot and dark chocolate or pear and elderflower, sure to reward those with an adventurous streak. Here's to ending your Borough Market tour on a sweet note. 

For those aiming to buy their first property in London, Southwark's proximity to Borough Market and its endless variety of top-quality food options in a buzzing atmosphere adds one more compelling reason to consider this area as your new home base in this epic city.
