Winter fare at Borough Market

It kind of speaks for itself

What it doesn’t capture are the pigs heads routinely on sale, the ageing beef that looks gangrenous (I’m sure fans of properly aged meat could take issue with me) and the three thousand variations on sausage and pies available.  It is good to see food looking like the animal it comes from though.  This grosses me out less than the meat section at my local supermarket where everything is wrapped in plastic and still oozing questionable substances.  Sadly, didn’t get a picture of the deer that surprised me in one butcher’s stall.  I was idly wandering the row of food looking for a likely meal and nearly wandered into a headless, footless but unskinned deer carcass lying on the counter.  Good times.
