Farmers Market Opening on Saturdays at The Children’s Museum of Memphis
Posted: Thursday, May 6, 2010 8:01 pm
The Children’s Museum of Memphis is hosting a Farmers Market on the parking lot every Saturday beginning May 8, 10am-3pm. Farmers display their fresh produce for sale. Children meet the farmers and learn about how food is grown and where vegetables they eat come from. Special programming will be offered by the museum related to farming topics.
“We want this to be a learning experience for children,” said Richard C. Hackett, chief executive officer. “Most young ones are unfamiliar with farmers and growing food. This experience will allow them to get hands-on with nature.”
There is no admission fee to visit the outdoor Farmers Market – admission to the museum is not included.
