Enjoy late night Christmas shopping at Borough Market
This year, in the absence of the usual mass gatherings, the simple pleasures to be found in buying, preparing and sharing food are likely to be felt even more intensely than usual. And there really is nowhere better to start the process than at Borough Market, a place unmatched in the quality and diversity of its seasonal produce. To make your Christmas shopping as convenient and pleasurable as possible, we’re staying open until 9pm on Thursday and Friday, this week and next week. Start the festive spirit flowing by browsing our stalls under the lights, accompanied by musicians and entertainers. See our full Christmas opening hours
Last call - cook along with Olia Hercules, using the finest Borough Market produce

If you live in London, order by 1pm on Wednesday and we'll deliver it direct to your door.
