Inland NW Food NetworkThe Power of Produce (PoP) Club is in the final weeks of being offered at the market. To date, over 300 children have joined and 21 farmer vendors participating in the program! Each week different activities are offered such as a pedal-powered smoothie booth, scavenger hunts, zoodle making, and tastings of farm fresh produce from the market. We are also pleased to announce that we are partnering with Panhandle Health to use the PoP Club as a educational platform for teaching kids and parents about cancer prevention through healthy eating. More info about the partnership will be available at the PoP Club activity booth and on our website.
