If you’ve been here long enough you’ll know that a food market is one of my favourite places to wander with my camera.
It struck me as I was editing some market photos from last month that I don’t share them with you nearly enough. One of my favourite places to have meetings in London is London Bridge as it means I can take myself to Borough Market.
I first encountered Borough Market in the 90s when my best friend’s halls were just down the street. I didn’t really get it at 18 and while it was an ok spot to pick up some food before the tube I didn’t make a beeline for it. Fast forward the best part of two decades and I kick myself!
I make up for lost time now and linger over the greengrocer’s displays, ponder my mushroom purchases and sniff out the best bread. I pick up lunch from the stalls and travel home with a full tummy and bulging shopping bag to cook up a storm in my kitchen.
As much as I love the food Borough is a great place for people watching. From the stall holders and their customers to the tourists and foodies enjoying the street food on offer. Despite having my only street photo confrontation here (it all ended well) I can’t help but lift my camera to capture the culture of this London haunt.
So tomorrow you will find me heading over to the market when my work is done to smell the smells, fill my shopping bag and flex my shutter. Will you join me?
