In the London district of Southwark, there stands a massive emporium of eating; a world-famous landmark, a bounty of gourmet delights since the 19th century known as Borough Market. Tables piled high as far as the eye can see with plump, pink radishes; brilliant emerald-colored lettuce; periwinkle carrots; fragrant, golden mushrooms; soil-dusted beets, hearty gourds -- and that's just one lone produce seller.

The entire expanse consists is 14,000-square-feet of food shopping, the likes of which you've never seen. Wide-eyed filets of bass; creamy, ivory cheeses; blackberry, passion fruit and black currant ciders; cocoa-dusted truffles and flaky pastries; crimson-hued steaks; fragrant, simmering stews; pillowy English Muffins and voluptuous breads. Publix, it ain't.
