A Truly Must-See In London – Harrods Market & Best Oyster Bar In London

My favorite part of Harrod’s is the market portion of Harrods Market London! Yes, the food market. This place is a London Haute spot bustling with people doing everything from grocery shopping to having lunch. I must admit, when I walked in I was unbelievably impressed.

The architectural details are off the charts and historic in nature. {Imagine that!} The displays were equally as impressive. Vegetables were stacked to perfection! Nothing was out-of-order, dirty, or unpleasing. Everything marked clearly with signage along with prices on each item. This may not sound like a big deal, but for my fellow retailer friends, you know what this means….great management and a lot of work!!!

We decided that this was the perfect spot to buy gifts for our Vegas PuTTin’ OuT employees and a little something for Boyd’s co-workers. I mean who gets something from London everyday? Especially from Harrods? Really. Okay, now I’ve officially dug part of my own grave with my friends and family that aren’t in Las Wages. Y’all know I’m TERRIBLE at remembering to ship things!!! Sometimes gifts ‘live’ at my house for months. I once even forgot to send our grandson’s birthday card! {Seriously….my daughters will tell you what a horrible mother I am…..especially when it comes to shipping.}

After the gathering of the gifts and exploring Harrods it was lunch time. We opted to grab a pie, scotch egg, among a few other things for the cab ride to the river boating excursion where we met up with my brother-in-law & sister-in-law. I only tell you this because it’s another tip….

P.S. Don’t buy the food here! It’s really tasteless, dry, and a couple of days old. Really! In Harrods. And of course, it’s not the best value. Save your dough peeps!

P.S. The cupcakes are best captured in a photo vs. your tummy. They aren’t worth the calories at all! Especially when you’re a southern girl who’s experienced the fresh baked goods for life from my mom & grandmother expecting a cupcake less than two days old. Their famous red velvet cupcakes are dry along with the 8€ beauties that equate to about $10 USD. I say take a picture and send a postcard to avoid the disappointment. Trust me, I wanted to conclude this experiment by showing you the cupcakes and various flavors (or flavours if you’re Canadian or a proper English reader). See the slide show pics 🙂

P.S. Make time to explore the wine cellar and even wrap up a bottle of Harrods branded wine for later or to take home as a souvenir. There’s consumable value and after all London is close to the land of the French. {wink. wink.} The wine was great! Not sure how they could really mess that up, but know that your money is well spent in the cellar and on the gift-wrap guys. They’re rather cute too!

My husband, Boyd (aka. Chef Boyd to my friends & family) & I love oysters!!! Especially the oysters in the local casino dive in Vegas, Palace Station at their Oyster Bar. So, taste testing the oysters on our second trip to Harrods was a must! Needless to say, I have saved the best for last!!!

P.S. The Oyster Bar at Harrods is our combined favorite of the food section. Chef Boyd is an extreme foodie so is sure to check out his review of the Harrod’s Oyster Bar if it’s up on his blog.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
