Kids Club at the Market - on HOLD 2020
We're excited to announce the Power of Produce Program will return for it's 5th year in a row in 2020!
Entertainment and activities at the Farmers Market make learning about fresh, local foods really fun! Building on the belief that farmers markets are for everyone - including kids, and that markets grow healthy kids. The POP Club will allow our market kids to explore new fruits & veggies by providing $2 in market currency each week (dates TBD for 2020 and depend on the School District's final day)
The POP Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games & demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits & vegetables. In addition to educational activities with our NEW POP Club coordinator, Sharon, POP club kids receive $2 in tokens to spend at the market - thus allowing them to make their own shopping decisions.
Our 2020 POP Club is going to be better than ever. We are so grateful for the sponsorships received from the Snohomish Networking Women's group, Snohomish Kiwanis, Kla Ha Ya Days, Yoga Circle Studio and gracious community friends in Snohomish!
How the POP Club Works:
Kids 13 & under, ask your parents’ permission to fill out the form for your membership card & button. You'll also get your own special market bag to bring with you each week to the market.
Each week that you attend the market, check in at the Kids Club Tent to get your passport stamped and receive your $2 market currency to shop for fresh fruit & veggies.
Return to the Kids Club Tent to record your "findings" and what you liked as well as participate in fun crafts and educational activities. Your passport will stay with us each week, but you can take it home at the end of the season! There will also be fun activities & speakers at the Kids Club Tent for you to enjoy!
Kids Vendor Days will be suspended in 2020
We love the enterprenerial spirit of our market kids! For the last 3 summers we offered TWO Kids Vendor Days and saw great success.
With such great success achieved from our young vendors, we're excited to announce TWO Kids Vendor Days again for the 2020 season! Children up to the age of 16 are invited to sell their hand-made or home-grown items at the Snohomish Farmers Market. Categories accepted include produce, crafts, nursery/potted plants and flowers. At this time we cannot accept food or baked items due to Snohomish County Health Department regulations.
The fee to participate is $5.00 (non-refundable) per Kid Vendor. Rules & Guidelines of the market must be adhered to, but the regular business license requirement is waived for this special day.
Applications will set up this spring and will be reviewed & prioritized on a first-come/paid, first-served basis. We do have space limitations given that these dates are at the height of our market season.
Applications must be printed, filled out & submitted with payment. Application and Kids Vendor Day dates will be published soon!
