Kids Corner Market
Are you looking for another fun activity to take your kids to but you're tired of the same old thing?
Are you wanting to get your kids more engaged in the community?
Are you wanting to get your kids interested in healthy food?
You need to try the Kids Corner Market this summer!
Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) will host the popular Kids Corner Market - - a series of free kids’ activities at Asheville City Market – for a second season this summer. Kids Corner Market connects families with local food and farms, and gives children positive experiences with healthy foods.
ASAP offers the Kids Corner Market activities in partnership with different community organizations. Some of the most popular activities from last year’s Kids Corner Market, such as scavenger hunts, food art, and a weekly raffle of children’s books will be offered again this year.
