Stop by our Little Sprouts Kids Corner at the market each week for fun educational activities and games!
The Power of Produce will operate during the Dearborn Farmers & Artisans Market May 20, 2016 though October 7, 2016.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS: Children can register for this program at the beginning of the market season and will receive a “POP CLUB” Badge, Reusable Shopping Bag, and a Passport to Health. Each time a child visits the market he/she can stop by the Kid’s Tent and receive a stamp on their Passport to Health as well as two $1.00 tokens to spend at the market on fresh fruits & vegetables. The Tokens are only redeemable at the Dearborn Farmers Market and can only be used to purchase unprocessed produce. Market vendors accept the tokens as payment and are eager to discuss produce with their young customers. This is a FREE program for children ages 5-12. Kids may save their tokens, but the market will not give additional tokens for missed weeks of participation.
WHY POWER OF PRODUCE WORKS: Choice. The program allows kids to make healthy food choices for themselves. And they are making a choice every week; which means they are practicing a healthy habit. Kids who shop and interact with the growers and farmers are able to fully participate in the market. By interacting with the people who grow fruits and vegetables, kids learn about variety, best practices, and value.
ALSO AVAILABLE: Gardening workshops, fun crafts, educational & fitness activities, as well as cooking demonstrations as a part of this program.
