Our trip to London Markets SLC







Ever since Simon left Britain 2 1/2 years ago, he has longed for certain foods of home. In Salt Lake City, across from Trolley Square are 2 British shops. Today we went into London Markets. This shop sells a bevvy of British Foods, from drinks to custard mixes to kippers as well as British souvenirs. Simon and I have decided we would make a monthly or every two months trip so we can have the goodies we loved so much in England. There is a definite difference in taste in certain things. For instance, the chocolate tastes different. I like many kinds of chocolate but my husband prefers British or German. This shop is really cool. Granted the prices are not very cheap, you pay what is the difference in currency between American and British. However its a fun shop and we enjoyed ourselves. Next time we shall check out the teashop/bakery.

i have been there many times myself and i agree the cost is quite high but that also covers the inporting fee's they also have a website where you can order these products on line and have them shipped to you, believe it or not you can also purchase british products on amazon.com,
We just had a british resturant open in idaho falls which is still an hours drive from us but well worth the trip, all the food is home cooked and freash, the other night i enjoyed stake and kidney pie chips and peas with gravy and then bread and butter pudding smothered in custerd for pudding, it was really yummy and not that expensive.
