CCFM hosts PoP Club, for kids!

The Power of Produce (PoP) Club is a farmers market incentive program for children, and is offered at markets throughout the nation. Each week, kids ages 4 to 12 receive a $2 token to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables.

The intent of the PoP Club is to engage children at farmers markets, empower them to make healthful food choices, increase family participation and build healthier communities. PoP Club is a collaboration between the University of Minnesota Extension Family Development, Youth Development, and Master Gardeners, as well as the Minnesota Farmers Market Association.

PoP Club at Chisago City Farmers Market runs FRIDAYS, 2-6:30 pm from JUNE 30 – AUGUST 4.

Activities during PoP Club include:

June 30: Catching up with Chisago County 4-H
