Resource Library

Welcome to the Farmers Market Coalition Resource Library, an ever-growing database of resources for farmers, market managers and researchers. These resources were developed by a wide spectrum of organizations, agencies, and academic institutions, and we are grateful for the spirit of sharing which allows us to bring a variety of tools to your table in one searchable portal. We hope you find them useful and consider submitting resources of your own for the benefit of the farmers market community.

Now That’s the Power of Produce: Using Children’s Programming at Farmers Markets to Increase Exposure to Healthy Foods

Promotion, Outreach, and Special Events

Through a three-year Jefferson Public Citizens project, a team of undergraduate and graduate
students created a multi-phase project around the Charlottesville City Market. In 2012,
the team created the Power of Produce (POP) Club based off a program in Oregon City. The
project’s main goals were to initiate action-oriented research, to provide better access to
healthy foods, and to expose children to fruits and vegetables in a variety of ways. Based on
local success, the POP Club now seeks to create a national movement dedicated to empowering
children to make healthy food choices through programming at farmers markets. The POP Club
provides farmers and markets with the opportunity to build a lasting and unique relationship
with future generations of local food supporters.
