Festive feasting is one of the highlights of Christmas and where better to source the finest seasonal produce than London's iconic Borough Market. The historic arches will be lit up and decked with beautiful decorations from 16th November, and from 1st December choirs and buskers will soundtrack shopping for the best meat, fish, fruit and veg, Christmas puddings, cakes, cheeses and wine for the festive table.
On 7th, 8th and 9th December a new, free three day pop up - Borough Market’s Festive Kitchen - will inspire and delight Londoners in the run up to Christmas. Guest chefs Angela Clutton, Ed Smith and Jenny Chandler will host cooking demonstrations and share festive food tips and tastings – all showcasing Borough Market independent traders’ array of seasonal produce including vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Borough Market’s popular annual tradition ‘An Evening of Cheese’ is back for 2021 as part of the world- famous produce market’s Christmas celebrations. Londoners and visitors looking for ideas for a unique Christmas cheeseboard can visit on Wednesday 15th December between 6-8pm for a chance to consult with Borough Market’s renowned cheesemongers and buy a wide range of cow, goat and sheep’s milk cheese from UK and International producers. The event will see cheese stalls spread across the Market with experts on hand to offer recommendations, advice on drinks pairings and delicious cheese recipes.
