One of my favourite places to visit while in London is the Borough Market. And after my thorough exploration, here are my five Borough Market Best Food options to satisfy even the pickiest of foodies.

If you are planning your visit in the winter months, especially over the Christmas holidays, treat yourself to a glass of mulled wine. A traditional holiday beverage in the UK, mulled wine combines wine with brandy, orange juice and cinnamon. At the market, local winemakers bring their unique blends to the cauldron, combining unique flavours outside the traditional.
