London - Borough Market

As my regular readers know, London is one of our favorite places for a weekend city break.  We headed across the Irish Sea at the end of January for a two day jaunt.
We stayed on the South Bank this time and caught some nice pictures walking from the Tube station across the Southwark Bridge to our hotel.
We stayed at the All Seasons hotel on Southwark Bridge Road.  From here, we walked over to the Borough Market.  We encountered these neon bulbs on an underpass along the way.
We also were inspired by this sign - "Take Courage".
We continued across Southwark Street and could see one of London's new iconic skyscrapers going up in the distance.
I liked these robotic gangs guarding the bike racks.
We saw a quote by one of Dublin's own, Jonathan Swift:  "A tavern is a place where madness is sold by the bottle".
Just outside the main Borough Market hall, we spotted the Rabot Estate and popped in for some chocolate.
They had adorable chocolate mousse cups on display -- we couldn't resist going in.  We ended up buying some left over dark chocolate Christmas trees for 70% off.  After tasting them, I wish we'd bought more -- so good!
Borough Market has all sorts of foods, flowers, and crafts on offer.
We even spotted some recently hunted game.
The fruits and vegetables were just bursting forth from the tables.
One stand sold focaccia and it looked so delicious.
We opted for a healthy veggie burger for lunch at The Veggie Table.
Muffins growing in flower pots made me smile.
We chased our veggie burger with a flax-based energy bar.
Tea for two, anyone?
We were still hungry and tried a free range chicken wrap with sweet chili sauce.
One of the things I really enjoyed about the market was this historical sign which highlighted pricing and appropriate behavior for the venue.  In particular, prices and tolls for things like raspberries were explicitly called out.  It seems like it was quite a regimented operation back in the day.
We popped out of the ornate entrance to the market after our amble.
Across the street we spotted Pac-Man cakes at Konditor and Cook.  Totally awesome!
We couldn't resist and picked up a ghost monster cake before starting our walk toward the South Bank theatres.
