On a crisp fall day like today, I love stopping by my local farmers market—and picking up fresh apples, greens, radishes, carrots, squashes, and more. The fresh air, the music, the sun, the colors, the food . . . I tried to capture the essence of all this in my new Farmers Market Create & Play Activity book.
The book was inspired by trips to the farmers market with my girls when they were little (I pulled them in a big red wagon and we picked out fruits and veggies together). The book comes with beautifully illustrated pop-out fruits and veggies, play money, shopping lists, cash register stickers, and other props for pretending to be a green grocer. It also teaches kids where food comes from through games and activities, including garden activities and a scavenger hunt to a real farmers market. Take a peek at the book trailer!
