Kids Market Bucks Club – August!

Join us today from 4pm to 7pm for our August 2019 Kids Market Bucks Club. This months theme is all about choosing the right foods and getting active!

We will be joined by our friends at Molina Healthcare who will be running a special “Spin to Your Health” activity. Kids will learn about the importance of choosing fresh, nutritious foods while also getting a dose of active living on the Molina smoothie bike. Kids get to pick out their ingredients and then get active while they ride their way to health!

As always, we offer the Fresh Bucks matching program. For every $5 in EBT a SNAP customer takes out at market they will receive $2 extra in Fresh Bucks to purchase even more fresh fruits & veggies. Just visit our market info booth for full information and how to get started.

We hope to see you at market!

Kids Day at the Market is Here!

Today is the day – It’s our Annual Kids Day at the market, sponsored by Holly Ridge Center. We have so much fun in store for kids of all ages!

In addition to our regular market vendors, we will have kid vendors, crafts, and our monthly Kids Market Bucks Club activity where kids 3yrs to 12yrs can earn $4 towards fresh produce at our farm vendors. It’s a fun day for the whole family!

Community booths & special activities for the day include:

  • Kids Market Bucks Club activity for July – “The Impact of Garbage” led by Kitsap County Public Works. Did you know that most living organisms produce waste products that are safely recycled by the ecosphere? Did you also know that humans are the only species that produce unnatural waste (and we produce it in HUGE quantities)? Basically, this means that we humans create lots and LOTS of trash. What do you throw away? Come learn about all the ways trash happens and how we can all be better stewards of our environment!
