The Farmers Market has moved to First Street in front of the library, from 9-12 on Saturday mornings this summer. Of course, the Teen Advisory Board has embraced the opportunity to get involved and volunteer.
TAB teens will help librarians with activities for children every Saturday, including crafts and a story time at 10 am starting this month. Some teens will even have the opportunity to do their own mini story time and read their favorite children’s books. More details on that later.
There is also a Kids’ Farmers Market on the third Saturday where each child gets 5 market bucks to buy produce from a kid-sized stall. TAB members, Mia and Hannah helped kids choose different fruits and vegetables.
Mia says, “I loved working at the Children’s Farmers Market. I enjoyed seeing the kids get so excited about the money they received to spend on local produce & products. One of the best parts was when I opened up a pea pod & showed them what was inside. They thought that was really neat! ”
Kids, 12 and under are invited to spend 5 market bucks every third Saturday of the month. The Kids’ Farmers Market is free and sponsored by Cache Creek Casino.
