Ahh, it’s seems immaterial to either show these photos so belatedly or to yadda on about why I didn’t show them before – just not enough time in the day… but here they are anyways.
So this was what we did on day 2 of our ‘recent’ gad about London.
This is Borough market, tucked under the railway arches of South East London and in the shadow of The Shard.
It used to be a wholesale fruit and veg market and there was never really any reason to go to Southwark back in the day (when I were a lass) but now it’s a fashionable place to go for all foodies, thanks in part to celebrity chefs endorsing it and the rise of independent food suppliers.
I dunno what it is about a pile of fruit and veg that gets my inspiration juices flowing, but it does.
Probably colour and texture.
These squashes made the most beautiful display of colour and shape.
My other half is the same but he wants to buy and cook it.
We had to satisfy ourselves with bread and mushrooms (but my, what mushrooms!)
In other news – we went here after a recommendation only to find all the shops pretty much closed – so my advice to you is don’t bother unless the Sunday flower market is on.
So although we were trying to avoid my usual London triangulation, we ended up doing it anyway.
The Christmas lights were looking lovely and Liberty didn’t disappoint either.
I also happened across Eames Fine Art Studio on Bermondsey Street where they’re having an Anita Klein exhibition.
You know already I’m a fan. This work shows her exploring her experiences of becoming a grandmother for the first time. Beautiful as ever.
