The Butcher, Borough Market, London


This photo was taken at Borough Market, a wholesale and retail food market in Southwark, South East London. It is one of the largest food markets in the world, and is regarded by some as one of the highest quality markets in the United Kingdom, selling a large variety of foods from all around the world. The wholesale market operates on all weekday mornings (2 a.m. to 8 a.m.), but the retail market only operates on Thursdays (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Fridays (12 p.m. - 6 p.m.) and Saturdays (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.). The market, which is focused historically on fruits and vegetables, has in recent years added stalls dealing with the fine food retail market. See also http://www.boroughmarket.org.uk.

I like the dominant red color in this slaughtery/butchery scene ! Borough Market is really a fantastic place when you get the chance to got there during weekdays. Weekends are too crowded for my taste !
