Get Growing is a series of events and contests specifically designed for our younger visitors. Each week we bring a different activity, craft or entertainer celebrating fresh, local food, our farmers and our kids. “Families have been a part of our market from the beginning,” says Lori Cochran-Dougall, WFM Director. “Kids are really excited to learn where their food comes from and meet the farmers. The farmers really love interacting with the kids.”
Get Growing aims to engage the children who already come to the market and to bring new families and children into the WFM community. The Get Growing program will kick off with a visit from the Westport Library, which will include children’s books and an art project using vegetables. Other scheduled visitors will include farmers, musicians, artists and chefs. Additionally, the program will include art projects and activities.
