Kids Farmers Market

_MG_0687

Kids Farmers Market program provides Yolo County's elementary-school-aged children access to local produce and nutrition education. Students enjoy fruits and vegetables procured directly from local farmers in the area.

Nearly 2,600 households receive locally-grown produce every month at 14 school sites across Yolo County. At least twice-monthly, students are guided during or after-school to learn about, sample, and select their own fruits and vegetables using play money to simultaneously provide insight into the economic value of food and its impact upon the food system. Children return home from school with more than 12 pounds of healthy produce for their families, setting the stage for a more food secure future for Yolo County’s next generation.
