The Power of Produce – A free club for kids!
The Power of Produce (POP) Club teaches children about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation through fun activities about nutrition, food, and agriculture. Participants engage in the full farmers market experience, trying new foods, having conversations with farmers, and buying local produce using tokens earned in monthly POP Club activities.
POP Club events are scheduled once a month from May through mid-November (see dates below). Activities will range from planting flowers, scavenger hunts, petting zoos, and so much more! When a child completes the POP Club activity, they receive 5 POP Club tokens (worth a total of $5) that can be spent anywhere throughout the Keller Farmers Market. Come join the fun!
