yes it is true! Apparantly the management of the market has put up the rent and they are leaving. Some others will follow it seems the atmosphere is very bad between the standholders and the Borough Market
I was being told by some of the standholders that due to the new concept - perhaps they would like to change the strategie and make it a tourist market, this I do not know - a lot of the regular customers are not coming back anymore and they do not sell enough as tourists do not buy food to cook.
Rhodes bread has also gone and I do know of two others they will also leave by end of the year. Pitty.
The good news is Tony will open his fruit and veg stall somewhere in the arches of London Bridge, probably near Druid Street
Have a good day,
