Thanks to our sponsors!
The Inland Northwest Food Network is thrilled to announce that we will once again be offering the Power of Produce (PoP) Club at the Hayden Farmers Market throughout the summer of 2018! Our 2017 season was extremely popular (336 kids enrolled!) with rave reviews from kids, parents and farmers alike.
PoP Club is a fun and engaging children’s program held in cooperation with the Kootenai County Farmers Market. The program seeks to encourage children to make healthy food choices by empowering them to shop for, grow and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables.
Children between the ages of 5-12 are eligible to participate in the program free of charge. Upon registering, they will given a reusable shopping bag and a PoP Club button. In addition, each week club members will receive a token worth $2 to purchase a fresh fruit, vegetable or plant at participating farmer booths at the market, or they can choose to save their tokens to buy a larger item such as a fruit tree.
A PoP Club booth will offer interactive, age-appropriate, cooking and gardening activities for club members.
The program will run weekly from June 2 – Sept 1, 2018 at the Hayden Farmers Market.
