It is very busy on these days next to the market in the garden of the historic Southwark Cathedral with people eating the bought food here. You can also buy cheap snacks in the streets around the market.
You will find delicious fresh juices of exotic fruit, the best burgers, fresh pasta, Turkish baklava, and cheesecakes. Even if you are not so hungry, you can succeed here. Buy, for example, select teas, herbs or fights for the home. The price depends, of course, on what you buy. If you want to taste just as much as possible, it might not be incredibly cheap, but still affordable for this quality. Of course, the advantage is that you can make it as expensive as you want. You can also eat a full meal for 5 to 10 pounds.
