Power of Produce (POP) Clubs for Kids!

Free, fun, and easy activities for kids ages 5-12

It’s easy to participate! Kids can come any time during POP hours, and do not need to sign up in advance or come every time. Visit one of the participating locations, (see below or print the list), and find the Power of Produce (POP) table. Sign up and hear about the day’s fun activities. It might be a scavenger hunt around the market, a quiz for the farmer(s), a taste test or some cooking, or a different adventure. Complete the activity, then come back to the POP table to get your POP Bucks: market money just for kids! Kids can spend POP Bucks on veggies and fruit around the market or farmstand.

Power of Produce Clubs are fun, free, and filled with fresh local food. Fourteen locations are hosting Power of Produce this summer. Find the schedule below or download it here. Kids sign up at the POP Host table and learn about the day’s produce-based activity. It might be a scavenger hunt, a quiz, an easy salad recipe. When they’ve completed the activity (everyone’s a winner!) children receive $2-3 of kids-only market money to spend on produce. Kids can come once or come many times, during the hours listed below. No need to sign up in advance or come at a certain start time. It’s a wonderful way to connect children with healthy eating, healthy shopping, local farms, and fun!

Power Of Produce Clubs 2018 are getting ready to welcome kids this summer. Please contact Lauren Griswold (Lauren@VitalCommunities.org) or Becka Warren (Becka@VitalCommunities.org) if you are interested in bringing Power of Produce to your area farmers’ market or farm stand in 2018. Learn more about Power of Produce Clubs, including free tool kits, from the Farmers’ Market Coalition and University of Minnesota Extension.
