Market at the Square launches its 31st season at 7 AM on Saturday, May 1, 2010. The Illinois Marathon will go right through downtown Urbana, close to the Market site!
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.
