Borough Olives sells a wide variety of fresh olives, sourced from specialist producers in Greece, Spain and Morocco before being expertly marinated in the company’s Essex kitchens using fresh herbs. The stall also offers an extensive range of antipasti, including pestos, tapenade, dolmades, feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes.


Sustainably produced by beekeepers who know and love their bees, the raw honeys found at From Field and Flower are a world away from their bland commercial counterparts. The honey is filtered slowly rather than heat-treated, meaning the naturally-occurring bacteria – and flavours – are kept alive. Products include spelt, chickpea, polenta and 00 flours, as well as a range of honey cremes – a blend of acacia honey and fruit.


Marco Vineis established Gastronomica Market at Borough Market in February 2000. In a bid to import only the finest quality produce from Italy, Marco has forged strong relationships with a host of small artisan producers of pulses, sauces, jams, mustards and vinegars, as well as seriously good charcuterie and cheeses from all over Italy: from the northern region of Piedmont, all the way down to Sicily.


Tacos Padre was founded by Nicholas Fitzgerald in 2017, appearing at Meatopia and various pop ups in London, Mexico City, Portugal, and Berlin before finally opening his first permanent taqueria in Borough Market Kitchen at the end of 2019. Tacos Padre has been inspired by Nick’s extensive travels around the country – the flavours, colours, sights, and sounds of Mexico’s street food, markets, and diverse regional cuisines are all distilled into the vibrant dishes at Tacos Padre. As well as stints heading up many of London’s best Mexican restaurants, Nick worked at the renowned Pujol in Mexico City.


Porteña – which means ‘girl from Buenos Aires’ – sells traditional Argentine street food. Specialities include empanadas, hearty pasties with fillings such as spinach and ricotta, ham and cheese, mozzarella and tomato or beef; yerba mate, a South American infusion drunk from a gourd through a filtered straw called a bombilla; and alfajores, homemade biscuits filled with the stall’s famously sweet and gooey, caramel-like dulce de leche.


Taste of Joy brings artisan eclairs to Borough Market. After previously working as head pastry chef for the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Zuma and ROKA, Jonathan Georgery met Bianka Ozsvath and, inspired by their mutual adoration of eclairs, the pair set up their business. With new flavours every week, the stall offers classic eclairs, mini puffs, eclair sandwiches and even vegan and savoury options.


Utobeer is a completely independent, specialist beer shop with 700-odd beers and ciders on display at any one time, mostly from smaller scale and craft breweries. Mike Hill and Richard Dinwoodie source great brews from all over the beer-drinking world. And as the beer-drinking world is pretty much the entire globe, that’s no mean feat. The task is made easier by the fact that the team all share a deep knowledge and passion for their products, which they are more than happy to share with their customers.

Whirld’s awe-inspiring range of delicious fudges are entirely handmade to traditional recipes, using wholly natural ingredients. Flavours range from their famous sea salt caramel to the more unusual chai latte, mango or chilli chocolate. ‘Pick and mix’ your favourites, or choose from their beautiful selection of gift boxes. Incredibly moreish, Whirld sweets are perfect for an indulgent treat for yourself, or a gift for a very special person – if you can bear to share.


Brothers-in-law Ben and Robin set up Wright Bros in 2002. What began as a procurement business, bringing the best oysters they could find to London’s chefs and restaurants, soon turned into running their own Cornish oyster farm on the Helford River; fast forward to 2005 and they’d opened their flagship Borough Market restaurant. Oysters remain centre stage, of course, but the menu has since expanded to include a roster of fresh and delicious seafood dishes: from classics such as Guinness and oyster pie or moules marinières, to inventive daily changing specials. Take a pew at the bar in the dining room or, In the summer, sit outside on a barrel to people-watch and soak up the Market atmosphere.
