Green City Market encourages young people to try new, locally grown sustainable foods with Club Sprouts. At every market, children are given the opportunity to taste an in-season market item. Those who sample one of the tastes receives a stamp on their Club Sprouts membership card. Once the card is filled with 8 tastes, the child takes home a certificate of accomplishment and a special prize.
The Club Sprouts table also offers fun, seasonal activities and lessons, from produce inspired arts and crafts to scavenger hunts, to hands-on recipes, so children can learn the benefits of eating fresh, healthy ingredients and supporting local farms.
Tastings and activities are available at the Club Sprouts tent every Wednesday and Saturday from 8am - 12pm and indoors on Saturdays from 8am-12pm. Ask any Green City Market volunteer about joining the program!
