60 children from 12 London primary schools will be setting out their stalls and selling fruit and vegetables grown from seed at Borough Market’s Harvest Sale.
Every £1 raised by the schoolchildren will provide six meals for vulnerable families across the capital.
The Borough Market Harvest Sale is the culmination of the Young Marketeers programme, run as a partnership with campaigning food education charity School Food Matters.
The programme teaches young people how to grow food from seed with the help of expert gardeners, before harvesting and selling their tasty produce to the public.
Now in its 11th year, nearly 15,000 children have been involved with the programme. Children have learned how to grow over 45 different varieties of fruit and vegetables at school, demonstrating the diversity of produce available in the UK.
