 Power of Produce!

IMG_2594This summer, the Morris Area Farmers Market had something new to share with the young members of the community. Children under the age of 12 were given $2.00 each week to buy whatever they would like at the Farmers Market. They earned this money through the ‘Power of Produce’, led by Stevens Community Medical Center’s dietitian Alyssa Thooft. For the first 10 weeks of the Morris Area Farmers Market at the Morris Public Library Square, Power of Produce taught children about a variety of fruits and vegetables in an interactive way. On Thursdays from 3:00-6:00pm during the Farmers Market, Power of Produce focused on a different fruit or vegetable.

This market emphasizes product quality, freshness and originality, with items produced and sold locally.
