Join us for the 1st Kids day of the 2018 season on our Opening Day of Market, April 14th! Siloam Springs Museum will be there with a fun activity for the kids. Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas will have a booth set up to share about their organization along with a free activity. Dragonfly Studios will be offering face paintings from $3 and up. The The Romper Room will be bringing a bounce castle. @Opossum Hollow Produce will also have a free activity at their booth!
The Power of Produce Club returns! The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children 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.
The POP Club will be teaching about how to wash veggies and kids will be making a veggie wash to take home with them. We will also have materials on hand to allow the kids to make a quilt square for our Kids Day banner! There will be samples of vegetables for the kids to try. Once they complete the activity and tasting they will be given $2 in POP Bucks to spend on fruits or veggies at the farmers booths. The activities planned this season are ALL NEW so make sure to visit the POP Booth and fill out your 2018 Passport!
A big thanks and shout out to our sponsors Siloam Springs Medical Center and Sager Creek Pediatrics & Family Care for making Kids Day and the Power of Produce Club possible!
