Young Marketeers getting ready for summer sale
Our Young Marketeers in Southwark primary schools are getting ready for our summer sale at Borough Market next Thursday 2 July.
Today heralded a series of site visits to the enterprising schools, with Paul from Food Growing Schools London on hand to assist with any veg-related queries. We hear that the veg is coming along nicely and crops include strawberries, peas, herbs, salad leaves and broad beans.
With a bit of sunshine and the odd shower we can look forward to a bountiful harvest in time for summer sale day. Please come along and show your support from 11am-1pm at the Market Hall, Borough Market and help our Young Marketeers raise money for FareShare.
