MARKET KIDS

The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market.

Art Activities: Bag decorating, fruit and vegetable art painting, draw and color a favorite fruit and vegetable


Nutrition/Gardening Activities: Seed planting, worm composting, fruit and vegetable tasting


Physical Fitness Activities: Hula hooping, obstacle course, jumping rope

POP Kids runs from June to August, Saturdays at 8:30am.
