The Del Ray Farmers’ Market announced the launch of a weekly children’s program this spring, the Del Ray Power of Produce Kids Club, according to a news release. The program aims to educate children about nutrition, food and farming by connecting them with local farmers and nonprofits.

Every Saturday between April 23 and May 28, the PoP Kids’ Club ten will be open to children at the Del Ray Farmers’ Market, a weekly, year-round farmers’ market that has been operating at Mount Vernon and Oxford avenues for 28 years. The tent will be available during market hours from 9 a.m. to noon and activities are available for children 4 to 12 years old, according to the release.

Each week during the program’s initial run will feature a different activity, including a market scavenger hunt, lesson on pollinators and an at-home gardening exercise.
