Sydney Markets has launched a new school excursion program suitable for K-6 students, which will provide students with a unique 'behind the scenes' insight into the workings of the centralised marketplace. It will also teach students the importance of eating fresh fruit and vegetables.
The excursions will focus on the journey fresh produce takes from farm to plate. Trained guides will navigate students through the early morning hustle and bustle of the markets, meeting growers, wholesalers and inspecting Sydney Markets' industry-leading sustainability initiatives.
Students will convene in Sydney Markets Central, the newly completed centralised communication hub at the markets. The excursions are aimed at primary school aged children and are free to attend.
