The Real Food Festival is an annual three day event which sees around 400 exhibitors – most of them small British producers – gather at Earls Court in May to promote their wares to around 20,000 visitors.

Every Thursday 14 of the festival's traders set up in the Jubilee Market on Winchester Walk to sell a wide range of produce alongside Borough Market's regular stallholders.

On Maundy Thursday there was a special 'Chocolate Unwrapped' theme with artisan chocolatiers in attendance.

The Sheep Show brought a ewe and twin lambs to Borough as the centrepiece of the Easter market. Children were able to help bottle-feed the three-week-old lambs.

There are plans for a live sheep-shearing demonstration at Borough Market in a few weeks' time.
