[ Local Market ]Several local markets that I have been to in London

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.

來到歐洲後,我發現每個城市都有購物街或百貨商店,例如法國的巴黎香榭麗舍大街,英國的倫敦牛津街等。但是這些購物途徑都是高價精品店,運動品牌或 目前在街上最熱門的品牌。

但是,那些購物街並不是城市中最迷人的地方,當地市場對我來說更具吸引力,您可以觀察當地人的生活,並與他們簡短地融合。

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

在倫敦,你可以看到許多不同的事物,除了看到摩天大樓之外,它還擁有當地市場和街道。 沒造成時代在變,市場也在消失。

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

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.

我要與您分享的第一個市場是考文特花園,這是我去倫敦時去過的第一個市場

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。

考文特花園(Covent Garden)最初是一個17世紀的水果市場,現在已經搬到倫敦南部,但是它仍然充滿生機和活力,如果你去倫敦,是值得一遊。

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!

如果你問我在倫敦必須去參觀哪個當地市場,我會說是博羅市場,博羅市場是被CNN選為世界十大市場,這裡每天都有許多知名餐廳來這裡挑選商品和選擇新鮮食材!

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! ! !

哦,對了! 它也有出現在《福爾摩斯探案》系列中!

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.

在這裡,許多攤主都使用自己的原材料,無論是烘烤,釀造,烘烤食物還是飲料,他們都會最大程度地確保配料的原始味道。

從鹹味到甜品,從英格蘭到西班牙,你可以找到各式各樣的食物,相信你絕對可以享受各種食物。

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.

我認為在倫敦不容錯過的第二個市場是卡姆登市場(Camden Market),它以前是倫敦人心目中的叛亂地區,但是隨著嬉皮朋克在1960年搬遷之後,情況發生了變化。

1974年,一些小供應商在假期開始銷售東西,然後隨著時間的流逝,規模越來越大,並由六個市場合併為卡姆登市場。

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

老實說,我不喜歡這條街上的東西很粗糙,沒有質量。

After you passing the canal, you are officially enter the Camden Market.

穿過這個運河後,你就正式進入卡姆登市場。

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.

在這裡,你可以看到許多年輕人會來這裡挖掘一些不同的寶藏! 我相信你也可以在這裡找到一些東西。

In here, you definitely can see street food.

在這裡,你絕對可以看到街頭小吃。

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.

在FIFA世界杯季節,漫步在卡姆登市場後,你會看到有很多人坐在這裡觀看比賽。老實說,我覺得卡姆登市場太大了,有時候我根本不知道我去了另一個市場。 如果您要去倫敦旅行,請不要錯過這。

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!

(這張照片來自他們的網站。)Leadenhall市場有出現在著名的電影《哈利·波特》中,神秘的魔石,是對角巷的場景之一!

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!

市場上還有很多餐廳,但在這裡我要分享這家韓國餐廳BiBimBop,在這家餐廳,我排隊等待了很長時間! 但我覺得完全很值得。

不得不說它非常美味,而且材料真實,這完全出乎我的意料,重點是他又很便宜!這樣一餐只有9磅啊!!在中午休息時,我看到很多倫敦人來打包回去享用呢!
