Celebration Sale

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Borough Market will hold its inaugural Celebration Sale, bringing children from diverse communities together through food.

Primary school children with backgrounds spanning four continents will set up stall in London's oldest food market to sell cakes, breads and pastries they have made to celebrate their cultural heritage.

The sale follows a training day in the market, where the children spent time with acclaimed Italian food writer and chef Ursula Ferrigno, tasting her homemade recipes and exploring different herbs and spices to use in their own creations.

The budding bakers also toured the market, talking to a range of national and international traders about why food is such an important part of their heritage, and listening to the stories behind the products that they sell.

The children's cultural backgrounds range from Africa (Ethiopia, Ghana) and Europe (UK, Finland, France, Italy, Kosovo, Poland, Russia) to North America (Caribbean, Mexico) and India.
