Local market in London
After come to Europe, I found every urban has a shopping street or department store such as Champs Avenue of Paris in France, Oxford Street of London in England, etc.., but these shopping avenues are high-priced boutique, sports brand or the hottest brand for now on the street.
Nonetheless those shopping street is not the most fascinating in the city which the local market is more attractive to me that you can observe the lives of local people and a little integrate to them in briefly way.
when I was in Paris the Marché Bastille is my favorite one; however, I think the Camden Market is my best choose in London this international city.
當我在巴黎的時候，Marché Bastille 是我的最愛； 然而，我認為 Camden Market 在這個國際城市的倫敦是最佳選擇。甚至我認為他是倫敦最佳代表的 local market
In London you can see a lot of different things which in addition to seeing skyscrapers, it also has a local market and street. Did not cause that the times are changing, the market is also disappearing.
London can be said to be a city of agitation and integration of old and new cultures; however, the market is an indispensable part of life for the British because it represents the traditional lifestyle of the British such as the Borough Market, the history is from 1014
The market at that time was not in the streets of Borough, but there were vendors of all sizes near the London Bridge, selling different things such as fruit, clothes, etc… Just like the traditional market of Taiwan, however, In the 13th century, the government merged the two markets, Jubilee Market and Green Market, into the current Borough Market.
Today, I will share with you some markets that I visited when I came to London which is Covent Garden, Borough Market, Camden Market and Leadenhall Market
倫敦可以說是一個充滿新舊文化的融合和融合的城市。 但是，市場是英國人生活中必不可少的一部分，因為它代表了英國人的傳統生活方式，例如自治市鎮市場，其歷史可追溯到1014年。當時的市場不是在自治市鎮的街道上，而是倫敦橋附近有各種規模的攤販，販賣水果，衣服等各種東西，猶如台灣的傳統市場一樣。然而，在13世紀 ，政府將Jubilee Market和Green Market這兩個市場合併為當前的自治市鎮市場。
今天，我將跟你分享我來到倫敦時，所參觀的一些市場，包括Covent Garden, Borough Market, Camden Market and Leadenhall Market
1. Covent Garden Market
The first one I gonna share you is Covent Garden which is my first market that I went to visited when I was in London
Covent Garden is a place where you have to when you visit London which you can see there is always full with people. In addition to the indoor Markets, there are many shops in the nearby streets also have boutiques. Oh of course, in every famous place there can not without the restaurants which there are gourmet restaurants of various countries, exotic cafes and bars full of specialties.
Covent Garden was originally a 17th century fruit market that has moved to South London now, but it is still full of vigor and vitality, which It’s worth a visit if you go to London.
考文特花園（Covent Garden）是您遊覽倫敦時必須去的地方，您會發現那裡總是有很多人。 除了室內市場外，附近街道上還有許多商店，也有精品店。 哦，當然，在每個著名的地方，都離不開擁有各國美食家的餐廳，異國情調的咖啡館和充滿特色的酒吧。

2. Borough Market
If you ask me which local market you have to go to visit in London, I will say is Borough Market which you cannot miss it. Borough is has been selected by CNN as the top ten french market of world and also a lot of well-known restaurants always come here to pick up the goods and choose fresh ingredients every day!
In 1014, Borough Market was a large number of small vendors near the London Bridge which they selling goods, seafood, vegetables, daily necessities, etc. However, In the 13th century, the market moved to Borough Street, the government in order to slove the problem of growing demand which combined the Jubilee Market and Green Market markets to become the Borough market currently that it is the oldest fresh fruit and vegetable local market in London and now has more than 100 independent vendors.
Now it sells a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, meat, cheese, traditional British food, special foods from other countries, etc… Compared to London’s prices, in here is much more affordable! ! !
Oh!!! it has also appeared in the Sherlock Holmes series!
在1014年，博羅市場是在倫敦橋附近的許多小商販，他們在這裡出售許多商品，有海鮮、蔬菜、日用品等。然而，在13世紀，該市場移至政府的博羅街以解決需求不斷增長的問題，讓 Jubilee Market 和 Green Market markets 結合在一起成為現在的博羅市場，目前它是倫敦最古老的新鮮水果和蔬菜本地市場，現在有100多家獨立供應商。
現在，它出售各種新鮮的水果和蔬菜，海鮮，肉類，奶酪，傳統的英國食品，其他國家的特色食品等。與倫敦大部分的超市相比，這裡的價格更為便宜！ ！ ！
In Here, many stall owners use their own raw materials whatever is bake, brew, roast food and drink, they will ensure the original taste of the ingredients to the greatest extent.
From salty to dessert, from England to Spain, there are everything you need which you can definitely enjoy the all kinds of food.
3. Camden Market
The second market that I think it can’t be missed in London is Camden Market which it was previously a rebellion area in the Londoners mind, but things changed different after the hippie punk moved in 1960.
In 1974, some small vendors started selling things during the holiday and then as time goes by, the scale is getting bigger and bigger which it is merged by the six markets become the Camden Market.
After you come out of the subway station, you will see the street of Camden High Street which you can see at a glance what he is selling by the special decoration on the wall
To be honest, I don’t like the stuffs from this street which they are quite rough, don’t have quality.
從地鐵站出來後，你會發現在Camden high 街的街道上，牆上的特殊裝飾，透過這些特殊裝飾，你可以一目了然地看到他在賣什麼
After you passing the canal, you are officially enter the Camden Market.
In here, you can see many young people will come here to dig some different treasures! I believe you also can find some stuff in here.
In here, you definitely can see street food.
In FIFA World Cup season, so many people sit in here to watch the game after they stroll through the Camden Market.
The Camden market is too big which sometimes I even didn’t know that I went to the another market. lol If you have a trip to London, don’t miss this one.
4. Leadenhall market
leadenhall market market is not like Borough Market, Camden Market have many tourists. Instead, I saw many Londoners came to here for having lunch. The Leadenhall market is also one of the oldest markets in London. It appeared in the 14th century.
Since 1881, the gorgeous roofs is designed by architect Horace Jones
When I visited there not many shops open, but I was hungry, I just want to find something to eat quickly which I forgot to take some more photos.
Leadenhall市場市場不像Borough 市場、Camden市場有很多遊客。 相反，我看到許多倫敦人來這裡吃午飯。 Leadenhall市場也是倫敦最古老的市場之一。 它出現在14世紀。自1881年以來，華麗的屋頂由建築師Horace Jones設計。當我去那裡逛的時候，商店不多，但是我餓了，我只是想找點吃的東西而忘了照相。
（this photo is from their website.）The Leadenhall market is show up in the famous movie that is Harry Potter, the mysterious magic stone, one of the scenes at the Diagonal Lane!
There are also many restaurants in the market that I am going to share this Korean restaurant BiBimBop which this one is super good that I have waited for a long time in the queue! but is worthy.
It’s super delicious, and the materials are real that is totally out of my expectation and the point is this meal is only 9 pounds!!! At noon breaks, I saw so many Londoners have taken them out!
The market is a microcosm that combines all kinds of life which you can see the life and simplicity continue the life of the local people. If you are traveling abroad, the most important thing is to visit the local market.
This time I went to visited four local markets in London which I share with you guys, I hope you will like it. Have a nice night.
