Every Saturday at 9:00, from June 3 – September 2, children are invited to participate in an activity and sample two bites of a fresh fruit or vegetable. When they return with the answer from their activity, they receive three “pop bucks” to spend on a healthy snack from the market.
POP Club will begin June 3.

What is the POP Club?
The Power of Produce (POP) Club is a nationwide initiative that began in Oregon in 2011. The program seeks to incorporate children ages five through twelve into the farmers market community, and empower them to make healthy food choices. POP Club was launched at the Williamsburg Farmers Market in April 2016, and continued to grow thanks to the support of SHIP (School Health Initiative Program), a partnership with the Williamsburg Farm Camp, and a generous donation from Danny and Larkin Schmidt. For the 2022 and 2023 season, POP Club is funded through a sponsorship from the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy.
