In the East Durham Leader Area we have worked with the following schools to set up school farmers’ markets:
- Seascale Primary, Peterlee
- St Joseph’s Catholic, Murton
- West Cornforth Primary
This initiative is a partnership between the Soil Association and the Mid Wales Food and Land Trust. The Soil Association was instrumental in bringing farmers' markets to the UK in 1998 and the Mid Wales Food and Land Trust set up their first school farmers' market in 2005. Together we hope to build on this experience and create a whole new way to enjoy local food.

This project is part financed by the European Agricultural Fund for European Development 2007-13: Europe investing in rural areas.
