Farmers' Market Kids' Day

WHAT: Urban Harvest's Bayou City Farmers' Market will hold its third annual Kids' Market Day on Saturday, March 29, 2008. Kids' Market Day offers children of all ages the opportunity to see where their food really comes from. Kids participating in school gardening programs will bring their produce to sell at the farmers' market. Vendors will bring animals and equipment from their farms to show kids what farming is really like. Kid-friendly activities will include seed planting, face painting, and egg dyeing using natural colors. Live music and a cooking demonstration will also be featured.

The Bayou City Farmers' Market is a project of Urban Harvest. URBAN HARVEST is a nonprofit organization that helps build communities from the ground up by promoting sustainable land use and horticultural practices to grow food and reduce hunger. Its farmers' market project helps educate the public about the benefits of eating local produce in season and provides the local agricultural community with a direct outlet for their products.

For more information, visit our website The Bayou City Farmers' Market provides a venue for over thirty local vendors to sell their products directly to the public.
