Power of Produce Club
Kids, Register for POP Club Starting June 3 at the Chimacum Farmers Market and June 6 at the Port Townsend Wednesday Farmers Market!
Our special thanks goes out to POP Club sponsors and program partners. Some of our partners include: the Organic Seed Alliance, the Jefferson County Library, Port Townsend Public Library, the Jefferson County and Olympic Peninsula YMCA, and 4-H. Our sponsors are Port Townsend Chiropractic and the First Federal Community Foundation.
With support from Port Townsend Chiropractic, First Federal Community Foundation and Chimacum Corner Farmstand, JCFM is pleased to offer a weekly kids club, POP Club, starting in 2018 at our Port Townsend Wednesday and Chimacum Farmers Markets. This club is inspired by The Farmers Market Coalition's POP Club and by Catholic Charities Food For All KERNEL program. JCFM will provide weekly hands-on, playful learning opportunities for children 5-12 years old June-October at our Port Townsend Wednesday and Chimacum Farmers Markets in partnership with the Organic Seed Alliance, the Jefferson County Library, Port Townsend Public Library, the Jefferson County and Olympic Peninsula YMCA, 4-H and other community partners. While the activities will be geared towards children 5-12 years old, younger kids will also be welcome to participate.
POP kids will register for the program with parental permission. Once registered, POP kids will take part in food, farming, health and nutrition activities hosted at the POP Club market booth and in the market on Wednesdays and Sundays. After participating in POP Club activities, kids will be given $2 in POP Bucks for fresh fruit and vegetables at the market. Visit this web page for more information and a scheduled of weekly activities in May. The first day of POP Club will take place at the opening day of the Chimacum Farmers Market on Sunday, June 3 at the Chimacum Corner Farmstand.
