Thanks to a sponsorship from Urbn Timber, we are thrilled to announce a new market program starting in September 2019: Power of Produce (POP) Club! POP Club is market-based kids program, that seeks to teach children about fruits and vegetables, local food systems, and healthy food preparation through fun activities. Participants engage in the full farmers market experience by trying new foods, having conversations with farmers, and buying local
POP Club kids are encouraged to try new healthy foods and overcome picky eating through exposure to healthy food options in a fun and exciting environment. Through the Two-Bite Club, POP participants are rewarded for taking two bites of the featured vegetable, and will receive a $2 voucher to spend on the foods of their choice at the market. These vouchers also serve to empower kids, by giving them the purchasing power to buy from producers at the market.
Space is limited to 50 kids (ages 4-10) each week for 2019. If you have a kiddo that would be interested in being part of the new POP Club, please visit the market information tent for more information.
