First of all, few words about the World Food Day, it has been proclaimed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) to enhance public awareness about the food problem in the world and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against poverty, hunger and malnutrition.
So then, how did I focus my attention on that special day? "I bought local"! In fact Borough Market is a place where you can buy all locally sourced foods, as well as some "exotic" Mediterranean foods (more of that later).
I could hear the same loud voices of the stall holders who invite people to buy their products, of the market where I used to go shopping with my mum.
Vegetables still had a bit of mud on them, they do not look perfectly made as in the supermarket and the display was artistic.
Autumn vegetables and game meat made a well show of themselves among the sourdough bread, a fantastic display at the fish monger and lots of specialities like goose fat to roast your best potatoes (as written on the jar!)
