Moor Market, 77 The Moor, Sheffield S1 4PF


Some foods have larger carbon footprints than others. At our stall in Sheffield’s Moor Market, you’ll be able to measure and compare the carbon footprint of commonly eaten foods.

You’ll also be able to sample an eco-friendly alternative food source: edible bugs!

Come and learn which foods have the lowest impact on our current environment and future climate, and pick up our recipes and environmentally friendly food packs.

This event is part of ‘Hands-on with Science and Engineering at the Moor Market’, a day-long science showcase for the Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering.

Grantham Scholar Emanga Alobwede presents ‘Food Footprints’ at last year’s Festival of the Mind at the University of Sheffield.
