Join the Market Bunch Kids Club!
Hey Kids! We have a free club just for you!
In the summer of 2015, we started our Market Bunch kids club. Market Bunch kids stop by our table each Market day for fun activities and prizes like free vegetables and Market Bucks.
We had a blast with the Market Bunch this past year and we are launching the program again in the 2017 season! Our Market Bunch activities are Wednesday and Saturday at Market starting on April 1, 2017.
If you are interested in volunteering for Market Bunch, there are opportunities to educate children at market and assist staff in planning and prepping for activities! Please see our Volunteer page for more information.

Supporting Market Bunch
The Market Bunch is funded by the generous support of our Market Perennials and contributions from area sponsors. Please consider supporting the Market Bunch program by becoming a Market Perennial! The Market Bunch has educated over 400 kids at Market and provided free fruits and vegetables to families throughout Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
We have been incredibly grateful for the support of The National Farmers Market Coalition and Chipotle Mexican Grill for providing educational materials for the program and generous funding of market bucks in 2016! The Market Bunch is derived from the Farmers Market Coalition's Power of Produce Club.
