In partnership with the Make TODAY Count! campaign and University of Colorado Health’s Healthy Kids Club, the Greeley Farmers’ Market is launching a new monthly program for children ages 3 to 12. The Growing Kids Program features a Kid’s Zone at the Market, and is free and open to the community. It will take place on the second Saturday of each month from 9:30 to 11:30am with kid-oriented activities focused on healthy living.
Each child participating will receive a special $2 coupon to spend at the Market on fruits and vegetables and a reusable shopping bag. Activities include seed planting, cooking lessons, scavenger hunts, and vegetable art.
The Greeley Farmers’ Market is located at 902 7th Avenue and is open on Saturdays from 7:30 to noon. For more information on the Growing Kids program, please visit www.maketodaycount.org. For information on the Greeley Farmers’ Market visit www.greeleygov.com/fm.
