For three days during the Easter holidays, we’ll be hosting a series of inspiring educational activities designed to get children thinking about the food they eat. Located in a dedicated space within the Market, there will be three fun stations for primary-age children to explore. All activities are free of charge and no bookings are required, but kids must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.


Get your hands on a range of fresh produce items hidden in a series of boxes, with the aim of identifying them through touch and smell alone. The difficulty of the challenge will vary with age, ranging from everyday produce to some of the Market’s more unusual offerings.


Discover the joys and challenges of growing food by taking home and caring for a seed planted in a compostable pot. Children will be able to pick from three seed options – vegetable, fruit or herb – and will be given expert instruction on how to nurture them.


Get creative by decorating a wooden lollipop stick to embed in the soil of your new plant pot, using stickers, pens and other crafting materials.
