Don’t you love December? The beautifully decked houses, the twinkling lights, the gathering of friends and families… An uplifting season, which inspires us to share, smile, enjoy the moment. And what better place than the Borough Market to help you prepare fabulous feasts for your loved ones?
Christmas vibes all around
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.
Borough Market’s Festive Kitchen
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.
An evening of cheese
Borough Market’s annual Evening of Cheese is back on 15th December from 6 to 8pm. The event will see cheese stalls spread across the Market with experts on hand to offer recommendations, advice on drinks pairings, delicious cheese recipes and tips on how to put together a zero-waste cheeseboard. There will be tastings too of high quality cow’s, sheep’s and goat’s cheeses from British and international producers.
More time to shop
Throughout December, Borough Market Kitchen will be open till 9 pm on Thursdays, with special delights alongside menu musts from the many street food traders. Don’t forget the Market is now open on Sundays too, meaning shoppers can visit every day until 3pm on Christmas Eve.
