At Bridgeway Station Farmers Market, we believe in nurturing a strong, vibrant community that includes our youngest members. That’s why we’re thrilled to launch Market Kids, a special program designed just for children! Every week, we’ll feature a unique booth where kids can dive into the fascinating world of art, farming, healthy eating, and creative movement.

Art Exploration

Kids will have the chance to get their hands dirty (literally!) with activities that spark creativity and imagination. From painting and sculpting to crafting with recycled materials, each session offers a new adventure in art.

Creative Movement

Movement is a vital part of healthy development, and at Market Kids, we make it fun! Whether it's a dance party, yoga for kids, or playful exercises, children will learn to express themselves and stay active.

Farming Fun

What does it take to grow a carrot? How do bees help flowers? Children will learn the answers to these questions and more, gaining hands-on experience with planting seeds, understanding the growth process, and even meeting local farmers.

Healthy Eats

It's never too early to learn about healthy eating! Our interactive sessions will teach kids about nutrition, where their food comes from, and the joy of tasting fresh fruits and vegetables. They might even whip up some simple, healthy snacks!

What is Market Cooks?

Market Cooks is a culinary adventure where we invite guest chefs to explore the market, select fresh ingredients, and prepare a mouth-watering recipe right before your eyes. This isn’t just a cooking demo; it’s an interactive experience that ends with you tasting the dish and taking home the knowledge to recreate it in your own kitchen.

Why Market Cooks?

When people taste good food, it’s a powerful motivator. We believe that by showcasing how to incorporate farm-fresh and local food into everyday cooking, we can inspire our community to make healthier, more sustainable food choices. This, in turn, creates a stronger, more resilient local food economy.

Taste the Freshness

There's nothing like the taste of freshly picked produce. Experience flavors at their peak, and see how they can transform a dish

Learn from the Pros

Our guest chefs bring their unique styles, tips, and tricks to the table, making cooking approachable and fun for everyone.

Support Local

Every dish prepared will highlight ingredients from our vendors, directly supporting our local farmers and artisans.

Community Building
