Borough Market is London’s most renowned food market; a source of exceptional British and international produce.
It is a haven for anybody who cares about the quality and provenance of the food they eat - chefs, restaurateurs, passionate amateur cooks and people who just happen to love eating and drinking.
But it’s not just the sheer quality of the food on offer that makes Borough Market special – it is also about the people and the place. The market is populated by a community of remarkable individuals from all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, all of whom care deeply about the food and drink on offer. Many of our stallholders are themselves producers – people who grow, rear or bake the food that they sell. Others are importers with intimate knowledge of whichever corner of the globe they source their products from.
As a result, the market has become a vast repository of culinary knowledge and understanding. It’s a place to explore, to ask questions, to discover new flavours and to savour a unique atmosphere.
Borough Market’s vision is to enrich the quality of life of the local community and to build on its reputation as a centre of food excellence. The surpluses generated by the market are reinvested in support of our charitable aims, to ensure we remain an important open space and public amenity for the benefit of those who live and work around us, and in protecting the historic nature of the market, which shall be run sustainably for future generations to come.
Our mission is to be a viable and sustainable, independent, quality food market, rooted in the local community.
Our core values reflect what is really important to us as an organisation and underpin the Market’s culture and ethos.
