london, uk :: broadway market

Yes, I have posted pictures of Broadway Market on here before. It is my absolute favourite market in London (UK) – hands down. Over the past year, we must have eaten up and down the streets too many times to count… mushroom risotto, hog roast, banh mi, roast beef + yorkshire pudding sandwiches, cheesecake… See that Fred Cooke store selling jellied eels? They have been at the Broadway Market since 1900!

It was pouring rain the first Saturday after we landed, but we decided to head out to the market anyways. Since we are staying in central London, our journey to the market has been shortened by half and we arrived just when the market was opening up. We tucked into a coffee shop when the rain really started coming down and picked up some fruit then decided on some sandwiches before heading back home to dry off. The perfect start to the weekend!

How is it already mid November!? The weather in London has been perfect these past few days with cool Fall temperatures and cloudy skies with sunny breaks. This past week had us catching up with friends that have recently moved here from Vancouver (had some comfort food at Byrons!), visiting the Harry Potter and Christmas shop at Harrods, checking out the new to us Chatsworth Market in Hackney, gazing at the Christmas decorations at Covent Garden, strolling through the Brompton Cemetery (apparently this is where Beatrix Potter took the names of many of her animal characters from the tombstones) and last, but not least, oohing and aahing over the Lord Mayor’s fireworks!
