Levy Beans 2016! Kids Planting and Face Painting this Saturday

Manchester markets kids

Come along to the market this Saturday and bring along the kids, as we’ll be planting some lovely beans and salad leaves – PLUS there’ll be free face painting between 12pm and 2pm. Manchester markets face painting

Our planting session starts at midday over by our gorgeously decorated container and we’ll have all of those teeny seeds all comfy in their pots and gently watered by 2pm. The little ‘uns can decorate and personalise their plant pot before we fill it with soil and get either dwarf green beans or lettuce seeds (all sourced from our fab local garden centre, Bud) nestled in there. Then, take ’em home and watch ’em grow!

If you do really well, make sure to snap a pic of your fast-growing plant (or your family having your home-grown produce for tea) in a few weeks and share it with us on Twitter @levymarket. We planted some beautiful borlotti beans last year, and they did really well!

We’ve got a great line-up of traders this week too – take a look here and we’ll see you bright and early on Saturday morning!
