Young Marketeers learn virtual tricks of the trade

3 September 2020

Borough Market stall holders have shared their tips and tricks on setting up a stall, sales techniques and making produce look super tempting with our budding market traders in a fantastic film.

On July 8 our Young Marketeers would have been showing off their prize veg at Borough Market at our summer sale. But a global pandemic will not stop our young horticulturists and together we’ve found a way to modify the programme so that it’s Covid-safe and a bumper crop is guaranteed.

Thank you to our resident film maker, Nick Angel and NatWest's Skills and Opportunities fund for supporting the programme.
