Shop at Local Markets – Avoid Touristy Markets

 

You can save a lot of money on food and souvenirs if you shop at local markets in Britain – but watch out for markets geared at tourists – you won’t save any money there.

Here are two examples of each:

Borough Market – London – Locals Market – A rich market, frequented by locals that offers foods, goods and more. It’s at the top of the list for markets in London.

Jubilee Market Covent Garden – London – A market geared towards tourists right off of Covent Garden – locals don’t frequent this and everything is pretty overpriced. Same goes for the Portobello road market.

There are markets all throughout Britain – some will be more touristy than others but you can easily identify them. If there are locals about doing their shopping – there’s good value for money. If all you hear is American or foreign accents – you won’t get good value for money.
