I popped into Borough Market at around 8am last Saturday. Most of the setting up at had been completed by the stall-holders but very few customers had yet arrived.

I had a wander around, trying pieces of cheese and sniffing the lovely smells of food being cooked.

The stall-holders were relaxed, chatting among themselves, ready for the onslaught ahead.

I had a crafty market breakfast; bubble & squeak, fried egg and brown sauce in a fresh soft white bap and a steaming mug of tea. They were slammed down on the counter without any frills. They tasted just great.
