Now that it’s (supposed to be) Spring, you can start doing some of the outdoor things that have been so unappealing during the long harsh winter we’ve had.
For one, experience Borough Market on a Friday morning. It is a unique corner of london that has a feeling of both stepping back in time and feeling fresh and current. I needed far more time there than I had allocated, since the stalls are vast and one is drawn to all the creative displays and diverse produce. When you’ve run out of ideas for a healthy meal, head to Borough Market and get inspired.
There are special events held regularly. You might want to experience Bastille Day at the market. According to the market “with such a great French community of traders here in the Market, it’s no surprise that Bastille Day is quite a cause for celebration throughout Bankside. To mark La Fête Nationale, on Sunday 14th July from 12pm we’ll be filling the Market with all things French, with fantastic events running throughout the day in and around the Market and even more happening in the evening. During the day, alongside our traders selling their French fancies we’ll have a special French-themed Demonstration Kitchen where chef Hayley Edwards will be on hand to share her culinary knowledge. There’ll also be promenading tours, traditional waiter’s races, bi-lingual storytelling, face painting, lotto and even snail racing in Jubilee Place from 12pm until 6pm. In the evening from 6pm until 10pm, the Green Market will come alive where the celebrations will continue into the night with music, theatrical spectacles, eating, drinking, dancing and singing.”
