The Food Explorers Program Returns to Our Markets

  • Aquidneck Growers Market Memorial Boulevard Newport, RI United States (map)

Food Explorers activities nurture children’s curiosity about fresh foods through weekly fruit and vegetable tastings, recipe sharing, and discussions on gardening and composting. We value kid’s opinions about what they eat and give them the tools they need for future healthy, local eating.

Children keep track of all the new foods they (bravely!) try in their Food Passports as they sample the fruit or vegetable of the week - in season and on sale at the market - and record their opinion with a sticker in their Food Passport. They compare and contrast flavors, learn about the parts of the plant, and sometimes are surprised at what they enjoy.

Visit The Food Explorers table at each of our Farmers Markets this summer.
