  Sprouts Kids Club

Sprouts Club LogoFrom June 22 through August 10, 2016 the Durham Farmers' Market will host a Sprouts Club at the Wednesday Market. The Sprouts Club is for children ages 5-12 and will have three main components:

1.) Supporting healthy food choices, food awareness and a healthy lifestyle through educational activities every week

2.) Encouraging children to try new foods through the Two-Bite Club

3.) Giving children Market currency to spend on fresh produce.

Children will check in at the Sprouts Club table every week (located next to the Market's Info Table) and then will complete a free activity. They will also have the opportunity to try several local fruits and vegetables as part of the Two-Bite Club. After they complete the activity and taste samples from the Two-Bite Club, each child will earn a $3 voucher to spend only on fruits and vegetables from the Market's vendors.

A parent or guardian must be present for the child's first visit to complete the registration form. In addition, a parent or guardian is needed to assist their child(ren) as they complete the activity.

The Sprouts Club will provide an activity for parents and children to complete together. The club will also empower children to make their own choices and to learn about where their food originates.

For more information, please contact Mary Yost, Assistant Market Manager, at mary@durhamfarmersmarket.com.

We look forward to seeing you at the Wednesday Market for the Sprouts Club!
