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.
POP Club is offered through the Farmers Market Coalition
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 will be at the market to promote walking and biking throughout our community, including pedestrian routes to the farmers market.
