Borough Market is once again hosting students from nine London schools, as they become market traders for a day, selling their school-grown fruit and vegetables to raise funds for FareShare – a charity that provides meals for vulnerable families across the UK.
Held in partnership with School Food Matters, the Summer Sale brings together London's food community to teach school children about the importance of fresh, sustainable food and help them understand where it comes from.
Now in its sixth year, the School Food Matters' Young Marketeer programme has seen almost 420 children sell their school-grown fruit and vegetables at Borough Market. The sales have raised over £4,500 for FareShare, providing more than 14,000 meals for UK families.
