Young Marketeers Summer Sale

7th July, 10am – 3pm

LONDON CHILDREN COME TO BOROUGH TO SELL FRUIT AND VEGETABLES GROWN FROM SEED AT THEIR SCHOOLS

On Thursday 7th July, children from 12 London primary schools will spend the day experiencing life as Borough Market traders, selling fruit and vegetables that they and their classmates have grown from seed at school. Every penny raised by the children at their stalls in the Market Hall will be used by The Felix Project to provide meals for vulnerable families across the capital.  

The Summer Sale is the culmination of the Young Marketeers programme, run as a partnership with campaigning food education charity School Food Matters, which is now in its 11th year at Borough Market. As well as being taught the basics of growing produce by experienced horticulturalists, the children benefit from advice from our traders on how to be successful stallholders, from creating eye-catching displays to hygiene and customer relations.

Since the programme began, more than 50,000 school children have been involved in growing produce, and the money raised from the sales has provided tens of thousands of meals for families in need.
