Borough Market is open for business once more. As customers return to enjoy its stalls and eateries, aficionados from the neighbouring FT office share their market favourites.
Dexters' London Bridge office on Borough High Street is also just down the road and the unique character of London's oldest market is a defining factor in making this area - a stone's throw from the river in the heart of the City - an exciting place to live.
"We have a fantastic portfolio of converted properties to rent or buy in Borough, with loft apartments like this one affording exceptional views of the neighbourhood. If you want to experience the full flavour of living here, a warehouse conversion is the ultimate Borough property," says Chris Ferguson, Lettings Director at Dexters London Bridge.
Like the market itself, Borough combines tradition with innovation; contemporary new developments offer exciting urban design with SMART home living, and secure underground parking also features. Why not take a look at our London Bridge property listings for some inspiration?
Over more than a decade I have passed through the market on the way to work, returning to it for coffee, lunch and yet more coffee. My mental map of the market marks out a network of treats, from the simple pick-me-up of apples and flat peaches at Ted’s Veg to the pesto-gnocchi at La Tua Pasta, thick slabs of ginger cake at Bread Ahead, spicy hearty pulses at Koshari Street and a hit of melted cheese at Kappacasein. The market’s identity lies in its history. Nicholas Lander, the FT’s restaurant critic, notes that 2,000 years ago it was a market for trading geese. And it is still changing, now home to established restaurants, up-and-coming stalls and experimental efforts by young chefs, such as the pop-up Eighty-Six List at 1 Cathedral Street.
