Many only think of St George as the patron saint of England, but the dragon-slayer is also the patron saint of many other communities, including Catalonia. In celebration of this, the market has teamed up with the Government of Catalonia for a special day to honour our shared saint, diverse cultures and traditions.
Borough Market traders will be showcasing the best of their produce including a special English charcuterie platter from Cannon and Cannon, dragon-themed baked goods from Bread Ahead and specialities from Brindisa.
There'll also be demonstrations throughout the day focusing on English and Catalan dishes, including from the popular Catalan Cooking, alongside a traditional performance from Passamezzo.
The exchanging of roses and books is a Catalan custom on St George's Day and the UK delegation of the Government of Catalonia will perform the ritual with members of the public, while traders will hand out roses throughout the day.
