The market locked near the southern end of the London Bridge has been a part of the city’s culinary history, tradition, and heritage for almost 1,000 years. It has hundreds of food stalls and shops, where chefs cook for customers, along with many wholesale groceries that supply food to high-end restaurants. Since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, large parts of the market have been closed to comply with social distancing norms. The shops that continue to operate are following strict regulations to ensure customers do not crowd at the counters.

To keep the spirit alive, the market has decided to create a shared community space on social media. It uploads videos on its IGTV and goes live frequently with tutorials of many recipes for its customers to try at home.

Don’t miss the chance to up your culinary skills this quarantine! Give yourself and your family a treat with recipes from across the globe.
