Market Buds Children’s Program
Market Buds aims to provide a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational and cooking activities, tastings, gardening, exercise classes as well as arts and crafts.
In addition to participating in weekly activities, Market Bud participants receive tokens to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions. The Alberta Farmers’ Market Association (AFMA) provides a set of over 20 tools, guides and templates to help communities engage younger customers in the farmers’ market experience through the Market Buds Children’s Program.
Millarville Farmers' Market has all of the tools, everything is ready to go, but we are looking for 2 volunteers each Saturday, starting this Saturday, June 15th, to run it from 9am until 2pm!
