Borough Market - It’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas


It’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas

At Borough Market, we’re not ones for digging out the Christmas jumpers as soon as Bonfire Night is done with. But just because it’s too soon for Slade songs doesn’t mean it’s too soon to start sharing our festive plans. The main things to know are that we’ll be open every day until 3pm on Christmas Eve, with a few small changes to our regular opening hours, and that our traders – their ranks bolstered by some fantastic guests – will be selling seasonal produce of unmatched quality. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing a video series of Christmas food tips from traders on our Instagram. We’ll also be publishing a special edition of Market Life, including recipes for the big day.

Open for an extra hour on the three Sundays leading up to Christmas (until 4pm) and on Friday 23 December (until 6pm)
Open on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but with early closing (3pm).

The future of food in the climate crisis

As the COP27 climate change summit comes to a close, this seems an appropriate time to share a blog from Tom Hunt exploring the role that industrialised food production has played in accelerating carbon emissions, and why produce markets like Borough can be part of the solution.

Taste Croatia

The husband-and-wife team of Chris and Ana-Maria source exceptional food from around Croatia, a small country blessed with a disproportionately broad-ranging cuisine: from the long coastline of Dalmatia, to the produce-rich peninsula of Istria, to the inland agricultural heartlands of the east. Taste Croatia’s specialities include the famous Paski Sir cheese from the Adriatic island of Pag.

The Turkish Deli

Traditional Turkish produce sourced from Gemlik, a region famed for its olives. The Turkish Deli stall sells more than 25 varieties of traditionally cured, unmarinated olives including salt-dried olives known as ‘kuru sele’, rarely found outside of Turkey. Other homemade specialities include black olive paste, hummus, meze, baklava, traditional Turkish coffee and a vast range of traditionally made Turkish delight.
