School Food Matters Summer Sale


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

Local school children from Southwark and neighbouring boroughs will be setting up shop, trading their school-grown fruit and veg at Borough Market.

These very select young traders will be joining the ranks of London's renowned fruit and vegetable market to sell their seasonal fruit and vegetables, grown and nurtured from seed.

The Summer Sale is the culmination of a partnership between Borough Market and School Food Matters, a charity whose mission is to ensure that every child enjoys fresh, sustainable food at school and understands where their food comes from.

With the help of funding from United St Saviour's Charity, the programme started back in the spring, when pupils were taught some green-fingered tips from Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins. They were also taught some top trading techniques, and taken on a tour to meet the Market traders.

All the proceeds from the pupils' fruit and veg sales will be donated to FareShare, an award-winning charity which seeks to relieve food poverty by rescuing good food that would otherwise go to waste.
