Building on the belief that farmers markets are for everyone - including kids, and that markets grow healthy kids, marketumbrella.org brings you the Marketeer Club.
We invite all shoppers under 12 to become a Marketeer. Receive a special treat on your birthday. Ask your parents’ permission to fill out the form at the Welcome Tent so that we’ll know where to mail your invitation to retrieve your treat on your birthday: $5 in Crescent tokens (good at all CCFM vendors' booths). In the meantime, entertain yourself and your friends with the market umbrella, which tells surprising facts about the food we eat.
Join us at the Market the first Saturday of each month for Marketeer activities for kids. Learn how to make healthy pizza, churn butter, and more! Parents are invited to participate in Marketeer activities or continue shopping.
Join us in growing the next generation of good eaters!
