In addition, we partnered with the Westport Arts Center to sponsor Young Shoots, a photography contest for children from 8 to 18. Young Shoots is designed to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their creativity through the digital photography medium, and to showcase the local color and vibrancy of the Westport Farmers' Market.  The contest will culminate in a reception with the finalists’ work displayed in a gallery style setting. “Our market is a real community event every week. The kids who are a part of that now are also going to be our customers in the future,” says Cochran-Dougall. “We want this generation to understand real food, where it comes from, and that it can be delicious and fun.”
