Pupils from four schools in the Southwark area will be taking to the stalls of London’s iconic Borough Market for the annual Young Marketeers Winter Sale, where they will be selling their own homemade soups, using surplus vegetables from the Market, with freshly baked bread.

The Winter Sale is being held as part of Borough Market and School Food Matters’ Young Marketeers programme. Now in its eighth year, the programme teaches students about food and cookery as well as giving them the entrepreneurial skills to market and sell their goods on a real-life market stall, thanks to advice from the Market's expert traders.

The pupils attended two workshops earlier this year and have since been working on developing their own recipes. The first workshop was held at The Cookhouse in Borough Market, teaching the students how to make two different vegetable-based soups using seasonal produce. The second took place at Bread Ahead Bakery, where they learnt how to make scrumptious warm ciabatta loaves.

As part of the programme, the children gain an understanding of food poverty and waste in the UK with all funds raised from the sale going to FareShare, a charity that collects surplus food and distributes it across the country. 224 charities and community groups have benefited from the charity in London alone. Every £1 raised at the sale will provide four meals for vulnerable families across the capital.
