Christmas-time Borough Market is a perfect place to find fine seasonal foods, baskets of holiday treats, and delicacies for the festive Christmas dinner.

Borough Market is renowned for its fine meats, cheeses, olives, bread, and other artisanal products. During the Christmas season, the market hosts several events, such as the annual Cheese-themed Evening. This shopping extravaganza, featuring tastings and demonstrations, attracts many cheesemongers. The public can sample cheeses from France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands. and local cheeses from Great Britain. Borough Market is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm.
