"One of London's most popular markets, Borough food market is open to the public from Wednesday through to Saturday, can trace its history back to the eleventh century, but in 1754, it had got so big and congested, that Parliament decreed to abolish it. A year later, some local residents acquired an alternative location nearby and it started up again."
