Another great day at our market for the children!

Don Doward of New England Fitness Design will present his special FYT For the Future Class this Saturday at 10:00 a.m.

What does FYT mean?  Fun Youth Training!  This 45 minute “boot camp” will get kids moving by teaching them activities that increase strength, agility, and flexibility, along with fitness basics, in a safe class. The goal is to to keep them them active and physically fit, all while having fun. No special equipment or clothing needed – just sneakers and comfortable clothes.

Back by popular demand, Holly Pierce will do one of her special Kid’s Cooking with Holly cooking demonstrations this week at 11:00 a.m., just in time for the young folks to try a sample or two after their fitness fun.

Holly has been known to get kids to ask for arugula. Could kale be in their future?

Live Music with Kevin G. Moore starting at 10:30, too!
Just a great day to come to the market.
