How To Hit the Farmer's Market with Kids


It’s all about expectations that are explained before we leave and it’s all about timing.

I plan the farmers market trips around snack time so that they are excited to sit in the wagon to eat. Then I stop at the produce stands. Once they are done with the snack, I hit the stands at with samples. ⠀

What I try to do before the farmers market is lay out a few activities on our breakfast room table, ranging from arts and crafts to blocks to some silks so that way when I get back from the market, I can prep and put things away while the kids engage in some independent play.
