Market Explorers


A free series of digital editions to help primary school children discover more about ingredients sold in the Market

Desperate for something to keep your kids informed and entertained over half term? We have a good option for you, and one that carries the additional benefit of potentially leading to a half-decent lunch.

The Market Explorers series is designed to help primary school children discover more about the produce sold in the Market. Each booklet looks at a specific ingredient, tracing it from field to fork, and includes several delicious child-friendly recipes to prepare at home. The series starts with a quick set of tips for cooking safely with children. The booklets have been devised in collaboration with children’s cooking authors and TV consultants Sally Brown and Kate Morris – the duo behind CBeebies’ i can cook and My World Kitchen.
