Kids “Market Bucks” Club at the Bremerton Community Farmers Market

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

The Kids Market Bucks Club Tent will be set up on the 1st Thursday of the month at the Bremerton Community Farmers Market, May through September., 2022.

The Bremerton Community Farmers Market’s Kids Market Bucks Club is modeled after a national program called “Power of Produce” with some fun added twists. The mission of our program is to educate and encourage children to take part in their local food system, meet the farmers that grow their food, and understand the benefits of eating healthy, nutritious foods.

Kids who complete ALL of the monthly activities will receive a special reward at the end of the season. Passports will be kept at the market so participants don’t have to remember to bring them back each week.

How it works: 
1. Visit the Kids Tent with an adult to get your Kids Market Bucks Passport
2. Complete that week’s healthy eating/ healthy living activity to get a stamp on your passport
3. Bring your stamped passport back to the Kids Tent to receive $4 in Kids Market Bucks
4. Visit our farm vendors to spend your Kids Market Bucks on fresh fruits, veggies, and other edible plants!

This is a FREE Program for kids ages 3-12. Let’s empower the next generation to make healthier food choices!  Each monthly activity will differ.

Who Benefits?
Kids are empowered to make healthier food choices on their own by having direct buying power with the market bucks. Through the activities provided monthly, they are exposed to healthier food options and healthier lifestyle behaviors which will provide them a solid foundation and enhance their food literacy.

Farmers also benefit from the additional funds circulating at the market through the Kids Market Bucks Club!
