Supplying hungry Londoners for over 1,000 years (!), Borough Market is the original and still one of the best. Local suppliers are in abundance, they’ve adopted a superb approach to sustainability and, with stalls like Bermondsey’s raclette masters: Kappacasein, delicious and healthy Egyptian fare from Koshari and famous vegetarian Indian Gujarati Rasoi, top notch street food abounds. Here’s to 1,000 more years!
