At the start of the year I had 2 aims - incorporate more lifestyle posts on Peonies and lilies and spend more time exploring new areas of London. With that in mind, armed with our oyster cards and cameras, we decided to go for a little wander around Greenwich market yesterday:
it was around midday we headed straight for the food stalls, and boy
were we spoilt for choice. After a quick stop to smell some amazing tea
blends, we went about the hard task of choosing what to have for lunch.
everything from Sushi to bento, wraps and burgers there really was
something for everyone. Perphaps most impressive was the Korean food
stall, where almost everything was cooked fresh to order. In the end we
opted for a beef stir fry and a messy but oh so delicious minced lamb
and hallumi cheese wrap. If it's a sunny day like yesterday then I'd
highly recommend walking to the nearby park where you can enjoy a spot
of sunshine and people watching over lunch.
desserts didn't disappoint either. Having sampled various options I'm
pleased to report that the millionaire's shortbread and warm churros
with caramel/chocolate dipping sauce were both absolutely delicious and
well worth the long queues.
filled, we started browsing all the different craft stalls. I
particularly enjoyed the home decor and skin care stalls, but there were
plenty more to choose from - perfect if you're on the lookout for
unique presents for friends and family.
Sark was just around the corner too, and although we didn't go on board
it was fun to look around, marvel at the design and act like a tourist
taking lots of photos. All in all, it was a really delicious and fun day
out. If you're ever at a loose end then I'd definitely recommend having
a look around London's many markets. Next on my list are Spitalfield's
and Borough market, but if you have any other suggestions then please do
let me know in the comments below.
Have you ever been to Greenwich market? Did you get up to anything nice this weekend?
