JOIN DPFM'S POP CLUB

 

Look for the POP Club tent at the market Saturdays June-October, 9a-noon! POP Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in our local food system through fun crafts, conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, exposure to new fruits and vegetables and learn about the importance of buying local produce. 

Join the Two Bite Club! Take two bites of the fruit or veggie of the week & receive $2 in POP Bucks to spend on produce at the market! The Two Bite Club is a great way to expose a child to new produce as well as engage with the farmers who grow it! 

 

Become a Two-Bite ALL STAR!  Visit the POP Club to take two bites of the fruit or veggie of the week for 5 weeks and earn an additional $5.00 in POP Bucks!  That's a chance to earn $20 more dollars for fresh fruits and veggies throughout the season!   

Stop by for fresh foods and family fun throughout the market season June through October!

NONPROFIT OF THE WEEK AT THE MARKET

 

DPFM is pleased to highlight weekly a local non-profit community organization in the space adjacent to the information table at the entrance to the market. If you are interested in sharing your message at the market, email us with your request - we begin scheduling featured non-profits in February.

 

Keep in mind that these featured non-profits are limited to those that have a direct connection to our Varina and greater Henrico community, expand upon our mission or highlight the conservation or healthy living focus of DPFM. 

 

From time-to-time, other non-profit groups and similar organizations may request space to participate on market day. Just as the non-profit invited to participate as the weekly featured non-profit, these groups will be limited to those with a local connection to our community. These groups will be considered and accompanied strictly on a space-available basis at the discretion of the DPFM.
