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. Youth can participate in educational activities at our farmers market booth and receive a $2 token each week to spend on fruits and vegeables at the market.
