Overflowing Bread Stand

I had been wanting to go to Borough Market for quite some time. The market is one of the largest food markets in London and has a variety of food vendors, gourmet food shops, and restaurants, so it's a bit of a food mecca. When I got the chance to go one weekend, I had to bring my camera to visually chronicle all of the delectable food that I couldn't bring home with me. This included quite the smorgasbord of breads, cheeses, produce, meats, seafood, and, of course, desserts. The colors of all the booths were so vibrant, and I was so happy to finally get the feast that I had been anticipating for the eyes and the palate.

If you're in the area, I recommend walking into the Rabot Estate Chocolate Shop for a treat. They have all kinds of chocolate to eat-in or packaged products for gifts and pantry items. I had a very rich hot chocolate to go along with a chocolate brownie. When it comes to brownies, I'm a picky girl who likes the fudgy variety, and I was definitely happy with the selection there. Want something more interesting? Try their chocolate crepes or take home a pack of their chocolate penne pasta.
