Farmers' Market Fun

After several weeks of enjoying the outdoor farmers' market and the cooler/wetter weather drawing near, we decided it was time for a change. The kiddos were still enjoying playing with the produce and baskets, so we thought we'd try an indoor farmers' market complete with all the produce and baskets, like before, but also adding scales, a cash register, signs, and more.

Incorporating measurement into the activity by adding some
scales and a small basket.

I took photos of the variety of items and we made signs to post
in the baskets.

By adding the signs, it created a sorting and classification activity
for the kids.

All ready for the arrival of the kids.

Loving the baskets some families donated to us.
They are perfect for the gathering of produce.

Busy making harvest selections and preparing to purchase them.

Adding up the cost of the goods for her friends.

Seeing just how much the corn weighs before purchasing.

It's been a very busy place!!


  1. Looks like you all had a fun time at your market! Great ideas, Miss Barbara!

  2. Seems like kids have fun out there and indoor farmer market looks good. Thanks for sharing it with us and keep posting for us.

  3. This actvity would be a fun for children and you i am sure. This will make children to realise the importance of right food for them. These kind of activities should be arranged in all the schools.
