Borough Market will be celebrating the UK's rich harvest heritage over the three days in the glass fronted Market Hall.
Displays will highlight the enormous number of different varieties of apple, squash and other harvest produce available as well as showing visitors the joy of 'growing your own' and providing plenty of Autumnal family friendly entertainment.
As part of Borough Market's drive to reduce food waste, there will also be live daily cookery demos showing how to cook up delicious dishes from the season's haul of fruit and vegetables, including top tips on what to do with surplus.
During the Harvest Celebrations, visitors will be able to watch apples being turned into juice and hear how this will then be made into cider from Borough Market trader, The Cider House. The cider and juice will be available to buy from the Market in April 2020, with profits going towards supporting Borough Market's community projects. Anyone who brings a pound of apples in for the community pot will receive a '£ for a pound' token, entitling them to money off when the cider and juice are on sale early next year.
There will be a wide range of activities throughout the celebration for the whole family, including demo kitchens from 1-2.30pm each day with Borough Market regular chefs: Angela Clutton (Thursday), Kate Young (Friday) and Luke Mackay with Beca Lyne Pirkis (Saturday). For children on half term break there will be a story orchard and demonstrations from fruit and vegetable trader Turnips on pumpkin carving – just in time for Halloween.
On Friday (25th) Borough Market's 'Young Marketeers' (children from local schools), will be selling their school-grown Harvest produce for food waste charity FareShare. Borough Market's traders will of course be selling fresh, seasonal and sustainable Autumnal produce.
