The Power of Produce (POP) Club is a nationwide initiative that began in Oregon in 2011. The program seeks to incorporate children ages five through twelve into the farmers market community, and empower them to make healthy food choices. POP Club was launched at the Williamsburg Farmers Market in April 2016, and continues to grow thanks to the support of SHIP (School Health Initiative Program). Every Saturday at 9:30, children are invited to listen to a story read by community partners, volunteers, and local celebrities. Then, they can participate in an activity and sample two bites of a fresh fruit or vegetable. Finally, they receive three tokens each to spend on a healthy snack from the market.
The market runs weekly each Saturday through November.
