A North Coast Food Web project
Sprouts Club Market Camp is a fun, free activity booth for kids at the River People Farmers Market. North Coast Food Web and OSU Extension Clatsop County team up with local volunteers to provide a space where young market shoppers can enjoy art activities, food tastings, and gardening projects based on OSU Extensions Growing Healthy Kids program.
Sponsored by local independent bookstore Lucy’s Books, Sprouts Club’s popular weekly Story Time is a great way for kids to connect with books about food, plants and nature read by some very talented community volunteers.
Each week, kids attending Sprout Club receive a $1 Sprouts Club token to spend on a fresh fruit or veggie purchase. It’s a great way for kids to connect with local farmers, and start making healthy food choices on their own.
There’s no need to pre-register for Sprouts Club, just come by the market and join in the fun! Sprouts Club runs through the end of August at the RPFM.
