The new Bell Brigade program provides an opportunity for local youth groups, clubs, and organizations to ring the opening and closing market bells. Groups performing this community service are eligible to host an information tent at the Market the day they participate in the Bell Brigade. See the Bell Brigade Guidelines (PDF) and Registration (PDF) for details.
Power Of Produce (POP) Club is for children ages 5 through 12 and offers children a chance to explore the Market and learn about different fruits and vegetables in a sensory-driven way.
The program is scheduled for the fourth Saturday of the month, June-September from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Registration and check-in will be located at the designated POP Club tent in Friendship Square. A parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child.
POP Club is a program developed by the Farmers Market Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening farmers markets across the United States so that they can serve as community assets while providing real income opportunities for farmers.
Bicycle Benefits is a national non-profit that supports and incentivizes safe biking and sustainability. Bicycle Benefits tokens are given to cyclists that bike to the Market with a Bicycle Benefits sticker on their helmet. Tokens are in $2 increments and may be used to purchase any item from Market Vendors. For a list of all participating businesses in Moscow visit https://www.bicyclebenefits.org/#/cities/165.
Summer of Science
The University of Idaho College of Agriculture and Life Science brings the Summer of Science to the market, and they offer unique agricultural science activities for children ages 5 to 11 throughout the market season. CALS faculty experts and students introduce participants to topics like entomology, animal science, plant science, nutrition, and food science.
Children collect different items at each event to build their own science kit. Participants also receive a passport upon their first visit, and those who attend at least five events are entered into a drawing for prizes.
Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School promotes walking and biking throughout our community, including pedestrian routes to the Market. They will be featured at the Market on select Saturdays offering bike safety and education.
