This fall, the Kingfield Farmers Market debuts their newest venture, the Power of Produce (PoP) Club, funded by the Kingfield Neighborhood Association. This dynamic pilot program aims to engage and inspire children aged 4–12, opening up a world of food exploration and promoting healthier eating habits.
PoP Club participants receive a weekly $2 token to use on an array of fresh fruits, vegetables, and even food-producing plants. By placing the purchasing power in their hands, the program encourages wise food choices while fostering a deeper connection between our community and the local food system. Alongside the token-based system, the Market is crafting an engaging lineup of activities that include food tastings, kids’ activities and a farmers market scavenger hunt!
Join us September 17 at the Kingfield Farmers Market, as we celebrate the launch of the PoP Club with a special POP-off event sponsored by the Lyndale Neighborhood Association intended to highlight local businesses in our area. Together, we’ll cultivate a healthier future for our children, our community, and our local farmers.

Signs of Pollinator Pathway will be popping up through the neighborhood in early June so keep your eyes peeled for the happy bee signs!
We are planting over 50 garden stops for the Rusty Patched Bumblebee through the Lyndale, Kingfield, and Tangletown neighborhoods! Bees will know where to stop because each garden will have similar flowers blooming at the same time and these tiny native bees feed on “constancy” (kind of like a picky toddler who will only eat plain noodles for an entire two weeks, who then hates them and will only eat hotdogs!)
Thank you neighbors for sharing in this work with us to create a tasty neighborhood for pollinators!
