Have you visited the High Point Farmers' Market?
The Power of Produce (PoP) Club at the High Point Public Library's Farmers Market! The PoP Club is a farmers market incentive program for children ages 4 to 12. Each week, children participating in the program will receive educational materials and crafts focused on growing healthy foods, the nutritional benefits of cooking and eating healthy foods, financial literacy and physical literacy. Children will also receive three $1 tokens they can choose to spend on their own selection of fresh, locally grown produce or save their tokens for a future market.
