Power of Produce (POP) Club Summer 2017
at the Williamsburg Farmers Market
The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in our local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions. The more POP Club meetings you attend, the more opportunities there are to earn vouchers, win prizes, and enjoy activities at the market. POP Club will run from May 27 – September 2, with a special POP Club on April 22.
Parental attendance is required to participate in the POP Club.
HOW THE POP CLUB WORKS: Children, between the ages 5-12 years:
- Story time begins at 9:30 am. After the story concludes, children are invited to participate in activities. Activities generally take 15-30 minutes.
- POP Club activities are based around nutrition, food, fitness, and agriculture. At every POP Club, you can expect activities such as seed planting, scavenger hunts, and more.
- Children track their POP Club attendance through the POP Passport. We keep the passport at the POP Club tent in the market.
- Participants receive $3 woth of tokens to spend at the market every time they complete both the activity and try the two-bite of the day.
The POP Club will have a special pop up POP Club April 22!
