Hands-On Learning: USDA Farmers Market


Within our farmers market we have a
VegU program. You can learn how to pick, grow, and prepare the produce on your own.
It’s more of an educational experience for families to create some type of
family tradition. Today we have two five- year-olds who are interested in learning
about the USDA Farmers Market here. We got a chance to see a lot of the fruits
and vegetables that the local farmers sell. You can buy some.. that lettuce for Mama?
And you can buy some green onions. You like those? Green onions! Yeah! Here at USDA we’re more than just a
market and we cater to a lot of families, tourists, anyone that’s coming off the
National Mall.
