London Weekday Markets

We will be in London this summer for 3 days (Mon - Weds) and staying near Waterloo. I am CRUSHED that we will not be able to visit Borough Market because of the timing. Will any of Borough be open Mon - Weds, even just a few shops/cafes to give us a flavor of the place? If not, are there other markets anywhere on the Tube that would be open? One more question: planning to go to Anchor and Hope. Is lunch or dinner better (less of a wait)?Thanks!

  1. Lunch or dinner for Anchor and Hope will be fine if you try to go slightly before rush hour (on a Mon - Weds if you arrive at around 12.30pm you will fine, perhaps 7pm for dinner).

    There will be a few of the stalls open around Borough, and places like Brindisa (for tapas) and Neal's Yard Dairy are open - it's still worth checking out.

      Roast to go (Roast pork sandwiches, scotch eggs, etc), Farmer Sharps (Veal and Beef Wraps), and Northfield (Burgers) should be serving at Borough as well. They were today.
