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.
