Savory Road with Jeff Baker

London’s Borough Market

December 10, 2016

Choosing an AirBnB flat in the Southwark neighborhood was a great move. Down the street and just under the London Bridge, we found a 1,000-year-old market - known as the Borough Market since the mid 18th century. The market was surrounded by related historical sites, such as London's last surviving coaching inn, and one of the first coffee houses (they've only been drinking tea in England for a mere 250 years). Jeff talks with Food Anthropologist and Context Tour Guide Anna Seecharan about the enourmous effect this market had on London history.
