NewsClub Sprouts Corner: Thank a Farmer & Braiding Challah

Posted Oct 21, 2021

Activity Overview

We have a few fun activities lined up as we approach the end of the 2021 outdoor market season. Check out all of the details below to help you plan your visit to the market and enjoy the last few weeks of the season.

Saturday, October 23 - Thank a Farmer!

Green City Market farmers are dedicated to bringing you fresh, delicious food each week at the market. This weekend is your chance to show them some love and thank them for all of their hard work! We will have craft supplies and construction paper at Club Sprouts for you to design a Thank You note for your favorite farmer. We're sure they will appreciate any kind words you have for them!

Wednesday, October 27 - Challah Braiding Class with Urban Challah

Join Brocha Benhiyoun from Urban Challah for a drop-in challah braiding class at Lincoln Park. Stop by the Club Sprouts tent anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for a chance to braid your own bread. Take your braided dough home and bake it to fill your house with the delectable smell of freshly baked bread.
