Date: Tuesday 23rd April 2019
Time: 12 noon – 8.30 pm
Visitors to Borough Market on Tuesday 23rd April will be able to enjoy a wonderful selection of British traditional and innovative cured, preserved, air-dried, cooked and fermented charcuterie. Leading producers will be providing tastings of their distinctive and delicious wares, from right across the UK, and offering them for sale.
“It’s the perfect opportunity to be surprised and delighted by the quality, amazing flavours, range and diversity of British Charcuterie,” says British Charcuterie Live’s founder Henrietta Green. “British Charcuterie is being made from many different meats and with a great range of flavourings, some reflecting regionality, historic recipes, or the latest in contemporary innovation in food. This will be the perfect opportunity to connect with the people behind the products and share their passion for this fast-growing British speciality.”
As well as these top charcuterie makers, there will be a display and tasting of selected 2018 Gold Medal winners of the British Charcuterie Live Awards, and an opportunity to discover some of the new products which have been entered into the British Charcuterie Live 2019 awards, which are being held later this year.
There will also be a demonstration area with charcuterie experts and charcuterie-making leading chefs sharing their skills.
Visitors can even try for a chance to win the magnificent hamper of British charcuterie and accompaniments which will be displayed.
Christine Elliott, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Borough Market says: “Henrietta Green had a seminal role in the renaissance of Borough Market some twenty years ago and we are proud to welcome her back to curate this new event. She continues her pioneering tradition with British Charcuterie Live, for a showcase of the country’s finest award-winning producers.
“British charcuterie is still in its infancy yet is remarkably diverse and Henrietta continues to innovate by championing inventive and traditional artisanal production.”

About Borough Market
Borough Market is a source of quality British and international produce, but it is more than just a place to buy or sell food. It’s a place where people come to connect, to share food and awaken their senses. Borough has long been synonymous with food markets and as far back as 1014, and probably much earlier, London Bridge attracted traders selling grain, fish, vegetables and livestock. In the 13th century traders were relocated to what is now Borough High Street and a market has existed there ever since. Borough Market’s mission is to continue to provide a world class food market at Borough for the community of London and beyond. Borough Market is the only fully independent market in London. It is owned by a charitable trust and run by a board of volunteer trustees. The trust is committed to supporting the local community around Borough Market. We regularly run community events, free cookery demonstrations and we support local community projects and schemes.
