The title had nothing to do with Borough Market. I just picked one of the busiest weekends of the year to visit. For me though it has far too many food stalls. A bit more variety of other things to sell/buy please!

Great way to spend a few hours wandering and nibbling . Go hear to browse (and eat your way through) the city’s oldest produce and artisanal food market, at the foot of London Bridge. The vibe is friendly and fairly slow-paced, if overwhelmingly crowded at...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We found a place to sit but had to stand for a while before seats were free. There are free cash machines just outside the market. We used one just in case it was cash only but didn’t even check.
