Student Farmers Market
Our Student Farmers Market program provides Yolo County's elementary- and high-school-aged children access to local produce and nutrition education. Students enjoy fruits and vegetables procured directly from local farmers in the area.
More than 2,650 households receive locally-grown produce every month at 18 school sites across Yolo County. 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 5-10 pounds of healthy produce for their families, setting the stage for a more food secure future for Yolo County’s next generation.
