For kids, the Meet Me at the Market program is often the first place many learn how hard working families produce the food we eat. Children ages pre-kindergarten through third grade meet farmers, learn to identify produce, and understand that food is not just something that comes from a shelf.
If you are a group looking for an activity that informs and entertains, please contact our Director of Markets via telephone 504.861.4488 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
