Borough Market History
Borough has long been synonymous with food markets and as far back as 1014, and probably much earlier, London Bridge attracted traders selling grain, fish, vegetables and livestock. In the 13th century traders were relocated to what is now Borough High Street and a market has existed there ever since.
In 1755, the market was closed by Parliament, but a group of Southwark residents raised £6,000 to buy a patch of land known locally as The Triangle, once the churchyard of St Margaret's, and reopened the market. The Triangle, where you'll find Northfield Farm and Furness Fish and Game, is still at the heart of the market today.
The market still feeds this core community and has grown to over 100 individual stalls. Alongside the original fruit, veg, bakers and butchers we now sell a huge variety of British and international produce.
All of their traders share a love of food and many of them make, grow or rear the produce they sell so now, just as in 1755, their customers know exactly where their shopping has come from.
The market ensures high standards of produce by employing a food quality panel of impartial experts who ensure that the taste, provenance and quality of foods sold here are all regularly measured and maintained and we support small traders to meet these standards.
With it's vibrant and friendly atmosphere, Borough Market will always be at the heart of the local community. It's unique standing within the area has recently been marked by a Blue Plaque, voted for by the people of Southwark, marking it's place as London's Oldest Fruit & Veg Market.
