Join us for fun activities from 9 a.m. to noon provided by the Siloam Springs Museum, Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, Benton County Arkansas Master Gardeners, and of course The Romper Room!

Have you heard about the Power of Produce Club? The POP Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive vouchers to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market.

This month the POP Club will be teaching about planting herbs. The kids will be able to taste some "in-season" fruits and veggies.  To participate in POP Club just stop by their booth and fill out your POP Passport.

A big thanks and shout out to our sponsors Siloam Springs Medical Center and Sager Creek Pediatrics & Family Care for making Kids Day and the Power of Produce Club possible. Thank you to Farmers Market Coalition for providing the resources used for POP Club activities.
