Camden Market

Yes, London does have a zoo, but the really wild times are just beyond the zoo at Camden. The trek along the canal is peaceful enough, but as one approaches the locks there is an explosion of people and goods and good things to eat. We were overwhelmed.

We happened upon the food vendors right at lunch time. I had to have the duck confit baguette. So delicious and only 5 pounds. Hubby went for the unusual. A vendor called Game On featured burgers from different sources such as crocodile, kangaroo, and springbok. The last offering was camel and that is what hubby tried (I had a bite, too). The taste was a cross between ground beef and ostrich and cost 6 pounds. Very interesting and not something I have seen around RVA, yet.

We then wandered around the shops full of vintage and non-so-vintage items. A great slice of market life. Lunch is definitely worth wading through the crowds.
