Eat Healthy, Grow Strong: Kid-Friendly Farmers’ Markets in L.A. County

We know that most kids find shopping b-o-r-i-n-g. We have a solution: Certified Farmers’ Markets in Los Angeles County that not only offer healthy, locally-grown fresh fruit, veggies and other nutritious food fare … but also activities and entertainment for the kiddos. We’re not just talking about a park with a sandbox and playground nearby — these farmers’ markets all feature activities like arts and crafts, face painting, music, cooking demonstrations and more.

Please remember to double-check times, dates and locations before heading out. If we missed any farmers’ markets that fit the bill that you know about in your community, please let us know in the comments below.
