Burrough Market

As we love to go out in search of a great market, and London has sooooo many great markets, we set off again and this time our destination was to be the Burrough Market.

This market seemed to specialize in fresh fruits and vegetables and meats, seafood, cheese, you name it as far as food goes.
There were also prepared food stalls, but most of the markets we have been to previously seemed to be mostly prepared food, and this one was primarily fresh food to take home and prepare.

Wow - for my food lovin' friends, you would have been so impressed by the displays. They were really great looking.

We weren't really hungry when we started out, but we did find ourselves wanting to buy all the food we saw!  Thankfully, we didn't buy everything, but we did get a few treats - some yummy cheese and chorizo.

 The girls were very curious about this - it was labeled Romanescu - I have no idea what it is, but am thinking it may be similar to cauliflower. Anyone know??

A little juice for the girls… a little juice for the parents...

After we left the market, we started walking… in search of a playground. Saw some neat things along our way.  This is a distinctive building in the London skyline - it is called The Shard.  You can read about it here.

This was kind of cool...

This was an outdoor eating area covered with umbrellas… actual umbrellas…

  1. The Romanescu is similar to cauliflower (although I think its much cooler looking than cauliflower). I haven't had a chance to try it yet, because its harder to find here. I have heard from several girlfriends who have roasted it like they roast cauliflower. Just cut the florets off and break into popcorn sized pieces. Toss with olive oil and shredded Parmesan cheese. Let me know if you try it!
