Would you take a bite of an apple or a carrot for $5? How about a bite of broccoli?

Well that’s exactly what kids can do at the Downtown South Boston Farmers Market through the Power of Produce Program.

The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children ages 2-18 to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market.

At the Downtown South Boston Farmers Market, we often provide opportunities for children to engage in fun activities and they get $5 vouchers to spend at the market. They can participate in designated activities or taste a vegetable or fruit and they receive $5 to spend at the Market.

If you would like to schedule a presentation to a group or school, study group, or event, we would love to tell you and your  kids more about POP. Just email us at Manager@SoBoFM.com.
