Borough Market, a visual journey

Ok so let me be honest: this post is really just an excuse to show all the the pictures I took in Borough Market, also known as my heaven on earth.

We have food markets in NYC.  We have the Union Square Greenmarket, the Park Slope Farmers’ Market, Chelsea Farmers’ Market, the list goes on.

But we don’t have a Borough Market.

I don’t know if I can even describe Borough Market. It’s Union Square Greenmarket meets Murray’s Cheese meets Smorgasburg meets old world butcher shop.

I guess I just described it.

But rather than talking about it, let me take you on a visual journey with me (if Beyoncé can call a music video a visual album I can call my ramblings a visual journey, are we agreed?).

Let’s start from the beginning…

We actually came in through a back entrance and did things in reverse because we’re rebels like that, but this is the front entrance

Turkish delights! Never had one, always wanted to try one, not what C.S. Lewis led me to believe they’d taste like

Beautiful elephant cookies!

Jam hearts!

Then we took a break to eat some pad thai…and this was the line

Serious behind-the-scenes noodle pull action

The glorious final product: well worth the wait

Oh, did I mention you can drink while you walk around? These Brits think of everything

This is where things start to get fishy

Happy pigs frolicking by the suitcase full of sausages. Does that seem messed up to anyone else??

Also, how pretty is this place??

This post is what I’m going to look at when I’m sad from now on, or when I have an upper respiratory infection and feel like an elephant (cookie) is sitting on my chest. Fun fact! If you have a cough and a sore throat for over a week, it might not just be allergies.

When you know, you know.

Anyway, this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous so let’s all agree to make do with whatever farmers’ market we can get to and cook something with fresh veggies.

This is a very good idea.

    So fun to see your Borough Market photos! I was just there a two weeks ago and it was so fun. Unfortunately I’d just had a huge breakfast, so I only ate with my eyes 😉
