Kids Club at the Market - on HOLD 2020

We're excited to announce the Power of Produce Program will return for it's 7th year in a row in 2022!

 

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 (For 2022, our Kids Club will run June 23rd through August 11th)

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.

 

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!
