ISU Extension and Outreach and the Sioux City Farmers Market are introducing a new free kids program: Power of Produce Club (PoP Club) at the Sioux City Farmers Market.

Each child participating in the program will receive a reusable shopping bag upon signing up and $2 market tokens to be spent (by kids) on fresh produce. Kids will receive their token once per market. They can choose to spend it on their own $2 selection of fresh, locally grown produce, or save their token for a future market.
The goal of the PoP Club is to empower children to make healthy choices when selecting food to eat. The program offers a chance for children to explore the farmers market and learn about the different varieties of fruits and vegetables, while also learning about how food is grown, by connecting them with local farmers.

Beginning June 8th and running on Wednesdays and Saturdays through July 20th children age 4 through 12 are welcome to visit the farmers market and join the PoP Club. Registration and check-in will be located at the designated PoP Club desk (ISU Extension and Outreach booth) at the market. Questions about the program can be addressed to Katelyn Brinkerhoff at 712-276-2157, or kbrink@iastate.edu.

We hope to see you at the market!
