The newly formed Power of the Produce Club at the Jackson County Farmers Market will give kids a chance to engage with local farmers during the market on Saturdays July 15, 22 and 29.

From 10-11 a.m. POP will include activities such as food art and scavenger hunts that prompt children to have conversations with farmers and learn about new fruits and vegetables. Kids will receive a prize for each day they attend and a $5 farmers market voucher.

Space limited with kids admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. A caretaker must be in attendance. Sponsored by The Great Smokies Health Foundation, Harris Regional Hospital, Western Carolina University’s Dietetic Internship Program, The Jackson County Department of Public Health, Jackson County Farmers Market and the Healthy for Life Action Team of Healthy Carolinians.
