The Faribault Farmers’ Market is celebrating their sixth annual Family Day from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday at 430 2nd Ave NW, Central Park with games, animals, food, Power of Produce (PoP) and community fun.
PoP, funded by an Allina Health grant, will be offering children ages 4 to 12 and older adults a $2 token to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables, empowering them to make healthy food choices.
“It’s fun to partner with the Faribault Farmers Market to help make the healthy choices easier,” says Josh Ramaker, Rice County SHIP Coordinator.
