Rural Advantage is introducing a new free kids program: Power of Produce Club (PoP Club) at the Fairmont Farmer’s Market beginning Saturday, July 22, 2017. Fairmont Farmer’s Market is located at the north east corner of Five Lakes Centre Mall parking area, near Burger King. The market is open on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am till noon.
This program was created at the Oregon City, Oregon, farmers market in 2011. Due to its success, it has spread to farmers markets all over the nation. The PoP Club has been in Minnesota since 2014 and is growing to markets around the state.
Each child participating in the program will receive a reusable shopping bag upon signing up and $2 in market tokens to be spent (by kids) on fresh produce. Kids will receive their tokens 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. Each week there will be a kids activity associated with the program.
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.
Beginning July 22nd and running through Labor Day children age 4 through 12 are welcome to visit the farmers market and join the PoP Club. Registration and check-in will be located at the designated PoP Club desk at the market which is Rural Advantage’s booth for taking EBT, credit and debit card transactions in exchange for tokens. The program is funded by the SHIP [Statewide Health Improvement Program] and the MN Legislature. Questions about the program can be addressed to Rural Advantage at 507.238.5449.
We hope to see you at the market!
