Meet Me at the Market!

Fresh & Local

Meet Me at the Market is our school field trip program where we teach students about healthy eating, farming, and local produce. Students meet farmers and learn the process of bringing food from farm to table. Our field trips host students in pre-school, secondary school, high school, and even college! This Tuesday, we’ll have three different school field trips happening at once. Swing by and meet the next generation of farmers market shoppers!
