Feel the need for cheese, actually you'll find an array of delicious foods in this covered market.
Fresh breads, dairy, fruit, vegetables, olives, cold meats, cheese, pastries, herbs, flowers etc etc - I even went past a stall doing stuffed pita bread with chorizo - yummy

The market dates back to the 18th centuary & has been used in several films, Bridget Jone's house was here as was the restaurant of the fight scene. Harry Potter & Lock Stock and 2 smoking barrells.

Beware of walking through here hungry your mouth will be watering for sure. The food is of a high quality but not necessarily "cheap"

The only days the market is on is Friday 12pm - 6pm & Saturday 9am - 4pm

Address: The Market, 8 Southwark Street SE1
Directions: 5 min walk from London Bridge station
