The Online Market is Open & Kids Day THIS Saturday!


Check out our great selection of local produce, meats, baked goods and crafts this summer! Also, it’s time for our second Kids Day this year, so check out the information below from Jesyka, our Kids Day Coordinator:

This Saturday is Kids Day! The Market is open 8am-12pm, with Kids Day from 9am-12pm.

Be sure to “RSVP” those kiddos for the 2022 POP Club!

What does Kids Day look like this year?

1. We brought back the 2 Bite Club! We will be preparing 2 Bite Club samples for each kiddo to taste a different fruit, veggie, or recipe each month, purchased straight from our SSFM Farmers.
2. Each month your kiddos will receive POP tokens to spend with our farmers on veggies and fruits!
3. We will have local non-profits set up with additional activities, just for kids.
4. This will continue to be a FREE and fun event brought to you by Simmons Foods and Arvest Bank!
To participate in this year’s POP Club all you need to do is login to your Locally Grown account (https://siloamsprings.locallygrown.net), click on the Kids Day tab, and add a “Kids Day RSVP” for each participating child to your cart, and check out! This will help us know how many kiddos plan to stop by during Kids Day (please remember that the program is set up for ages 3-12). Don’t forget, you’ll have to “RSVP” each month.

When you arrive at the market on Kids Day, head straight to the Outdoor Farmers Market Hub located in the Memorial Park concession stand from 9am-12pm to participate in POP Club activities. 2 Bite Club, POP tokens pick up, and all other information will be located at the concession stand.Your kiddos will earn their $2 tokens each Kids Day, then be able to shop the Outdoor Market, using their money to purchase fruits, vegetables, or a plant that produces fruit or vegetables. When you pick up your kits, be sure to peruse the market and check out the young entrepreneur Kids Day booths as well!
