One of our most successful community engagements has been our at-market children's programming. Organized by volunteers, our weekly Children's Tent activities are educational, market-related, and just plain fun. They are the highlight of the morning for many families and for kids of all ages. Join in on the fun every Saturday, May 18th through October 19th, 2019 from 9am-1pm.

We are excited to continue the free kids program at the Northeast Farmers Market: Power of Produce Club (PoP Club)! June 15th through August 31st.
Each child between the ages of 4 through 12 participating in the program will receive a $2 market tokens to be spent (by kids) on fresh produce. Kids will receive their token once per market. They can choose to spend it on their own $2 selection of fresh, locally grown produce, or save their token for a future market day.
The goal of the PoP Club is to empower children to make healthy choices when selecting food to eat. The program offers a chance for children to explore the farmers market and learn about the different varieties of fruits and vegetables, while also learning about how food is grown, by connecting them with local farmers.
Registration and check-in will be located at the market Information Booth. Program will be open June 15th through August 31st.
We hope to see you there!
