The Arcadia Mobile Market is Coming to a Schoolyard Near You!
Arcadia’s Mobile Market is a 28-foot long school bus that doubles as a farmers’ market on wheels. It’s an exciting new tool to teach DC students about farming, farmers markets, and the local food system. The Mobile Market is designed to get kids involved in hands-on activities related to farming, farmers’ markets, and nutrition while getting them excited about eating local food! Arcadia will be visiting a series of schools on Tuesdays this fall.
What the Mobile Market Provides:
Hands-on activities related to plant growth
Interactive farmers market activities for students
Samples of local food
Engaging cooking demonstrations featuring local DC chefs
Recipe ideas emphasizing local and seasonal foods
Local Food curriculum tie-in ideas for teachers to get kids engaged
