Love Your Farmer Scavenger Hunts at participating farmers’ markets in the Upper Valley, to Celebrate New Hampshire Eat Local Month and Vermont Open Farm week August 15-21.

Scavenger-hunt-cover-pic-208x300The Love Your Farmer Scavenger Hunt takes kids around the market to find, count, taste, and tell us what they love about farms and farmers at the market.  Every kid gets a small prize for participating and is entered in to a raffle to win a grand prize when they return their hunt.

It’s simple to participate! Visit one of the participating markets near you (see below) and find the Scavenger Hunt table to begin your fun and tasty hunt around the vendor tents.

Eleven Farmers’ Markets in the Upper Valley are partnering with Vital Communities to host scavenger hunts at their markets the week of August 15-21. In New Hampshire, the Lebanon, New London, Hanover, and Canaan markets will host the scavenger hunt. In Vermont, the Bellows Falls, South Royalton, Hartland, Windsor, Norwich, Chelsea, and Barnard markets will host scavenger hunts.

Visit www.NHEatLocal.org to find details on the New Hampshire markets, and www.DigInVT.com for details on Vermont markets. New Hampshire Eat Local Month and Vermont Open Farm Week offer many other special events for your family. Enjoy our local bounty in August!
