Schools to Market

We are kicking off the eighth year of our Schools to Market programme in partnership with Whole Kids Foundation!

Schools to Market Covid-19 style!

We’ve had to give market day at Whole Foods a miss this year but the programme will continue into the autumn term.

  • Chutney masterclass- Chef Ruth Quinlan has put together a video showing schools how to make chutney with easy-to-follow instructions. Students will then have the opportunity to join in a live Q&A session with Ruth to sort out any chutney challenges. We will also be sending kits to all participating schools to help get them started.
  • Marketing workshop- Our marketing session has gone virtual with creative writing and artistic endeavours to entice customers!
  • Farm trip- If children are unable to visit a farm, we’ll be bringing the farm to the children! Chef Ruth will be conducting her Q&A sessions out on the farm, so that students can learn all about harvesting and preserving fresh, seasonal fruit and veg. 
  • Market day- This year Market Day will be at school with all 16 schools selling their treats to raise money for more food education.

Schools can find everything they need to get the most out of this programme by going to our Resource Hub. Just click on the link below to get started.

"I enjoyed going to the farm because it inspired me to be a farmer, because they grow lots of fruit and veg and you don’t have to buy from a store" 

Student, Greenside Primary School

"It has been lovely sharing practices with other teachers and children.  The students were in awe at the farm. Giving them the chance to find out about where food comes from was invaluable"
Teacher, The Courtyard AP School
