If you are visiting London or staying for a while, you must visit the markets. London is famous for having the best markets, with delicious fresh food and anything else you could possibly think of. If you want to know the best to go to, here’s my top three ranked must see markets in London!

      3.Borough Market

The Borough Market is located on the South Bank of London and is the place where you can spend hours any day of the week. The Borough Market is known for its food, especially sweets, ranging from different sorts of fudge to the best milkshakes you’ll ever find, or you can even switch to the other side of the spectrum and get fresh fish and pork. This market is definitely a must see for all the food lovers, and make sure when you show up you are ready to eat.

    2.Portobello Road Market

Located in Notting Hill, the Portobello Road Market is the place to be on a Saturday morning.  Portobello Market is one of the most famous markets in London. You can find anything you’re looking for here ranging from cute little knickknacks, to beautiful bags, and even fresh vegetables. The food vendors that you will find right in the middle of the market will have the best foods you will ever try in your life. You can actually sample any type of food you could ever dream of including Asian, Turkish and Italian.  If you have a free Saturday I would definitely recommend browsing around the Portobello Market.
