Paul: We spoke to Richard, a local trader. He said there is a lot of history in this place.
Borough market has been here for about 1,000 years, pretty much since the Romans left and it used to go across both sides of London Bridge, as London Bridge was much bigger, much wider and people used to live on it. But it was deemed too dangerous and so it was brought down onto the bank side. So there's a lot of history in this place and it’s a good place to come if you like food especially 'cause there's lots of different food from different places all over the world and everybody is particularly passionate about their particular product.
Richard, trader at Borough Market
