A programme that seeks to showcase potential solutions to the food world’s most compelling challenges
Borough Market is actively seeking to identify and incubate the next generation of traders, particularly those that offer fresh ideas about sustainability, health, waste minimisation and local production (while, as hardly needs be said, meeting the usual exacting standards of food quality). The Food Futures Market offers a host of innovators the chance to test their products and tell their stories at Borough Market, and-perhaps most importantly-make connections and share ideas with shoppers and traders whose responses will help shape their evolution. They will be joined each week by a guest trader from South Bank University’s London Agri-Food Innovation Clinic (LAFIC), a project that supports fledgling food businesses, providing them with free, professional advice and funded support to increase research and development.
The full Food Futures Market starts in the Green Market on 20th November. Full schedule below.
