All at-market activities and sampling have been suspended. Instead, a parent/guardian can pick-up FREE take-home activity kits, fruit/vegetable samples, and $5 in Produce Bucks for each child in their household, ages 2 – 12. Children DO NOT need to be present and are encouraged to stay home, if possible. Take-home kits can be collected from our information booth. If you prefer curbside delivery please call (865)805-8687, ext.1 when you arrive at market and we will deliver your kit(s) to your car.
Nourish Kids (formerly known as the Power of Produce Club) provides an opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. Kids build relationships with farmers, create positive associations with fruit and vegetables, develop budgeting skills, and begin to influence their local food economy.
Nourish Kids Club is FREE for children ages 2-12 and includes an activity, a sample of a locally grown fruit or vegetable, and $5 in Produce Bucks to be spent at the market.
Nourish Kids Club will be offered at two markets this winter:
-Nourish Knoxville’s Winter Farmers’ Market, every other Saturday 11 am – 1 pm
-Winter Farmers’ Market by Grow Oak Ridge, every Saturday 9 am – 12 pm.
