FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—October 14, 2009
The City of Urbana’s Market at the Square invites Market patrons and their kids to Sprouts at the Market, a produce-tasting/nutrition information event geared toward children ages 4-10. The season’s fourth and final Sprouts event, a self-guided market tour learning about fall and winter foods, will also feature a take-home Sprouts bag and trick-or-treating for produce for participants. The event will take place on Saturday, October 24.
Sprouts at the Market programming encourages young Market patrons - and their adults! - to learn about eating seasonally and healthfully in Illinois. In addition to meeting local farmers and receiving nutrition information, each child will have a chance to sample some of the fruits, vegetables, cheese, honey, and other farm products available at the Market.
