The Manchester Farmers Market hosts special programs throughout the market season. All programs are free, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.
Art Farm Art Farm is a tent at the market that’s just for kids! We invite children of all ages to come make free agriculture inspired crafts, or take part in food-based activities. Each week during the summer we’ll have a new activity for kids to do, lead by our Art Farm coordinator.
PoP Club: The PoP (Power of Produce) Club is open to all kids age 5-12 during the month of July. Each week, kids will be given a $2 coupon to use on any fruit or vegetable at the market. They’ll also get a booklet that will allow them to keep track of their choices and how many weeks they’ve participated. Kids are encouraged to try a sample of a local fruit or veggie each week for the duration of the PoP Club. Best of all: this program is 100% free!
Community Tent The community tent is a space for local non-profits to come to the market and talk about what they are doing in the community. It is also a space where we can host local chefs, demonstrating their skill with local foods. Market shoppers are invited to learn about community organizations or sample some unexpected treats.
Kids’ Market Day The Manchester Farmers Market hosts Kids’ Market Day every year over the summer break. Once a year, we invite kids to come sell their wares at the market. We provide a tent for all kids who wish to sell homemade treats, crafts, or fresh food from their garden. Preregistration is required, so kids interested will need to have their parents email the market manager. This event is free and open to all kids.
