As with all recreation, athletic and fitness programs, you must use common sense to reduce and avoid injury. You should check with your doctor before beginning any athletic or fitness program. By performing any recreation, athletic or fitness activities, including any activities you do at home through our virtual programming, you are performing them at your own risk. The City of Richfield will not be responsible or liable for any injury or harm you sustain as a result of our recreation, athletic and fitness program content. This includes but is not limited to all virtual programming, videos, text, or information on this website.

    Power of Produce Club
    POP Club website
    :Power of Produce Club, or POP Club, is a club for kids ages 4-12 at the Richfield Farmers Market. This year, we are offering POP Club online - kids can pick out their produce from our online store with help from a parent or guardian. Kids can read about each farm and see pictures of the farms online too. Online activities, materials, and links to engage the club participants will be sent to parent emails. 2020 POP Club is sponsored by Lakewinds Co-op. Thank you Lakewinds!

    After you turn in your family's registration form, market staff will sign parents up as a customer on our online store. Check your email (and spam folder) for an invitation from Richfield Farmers Market/Local Line. 

    POP Club tokens will be given out as store credit, distributed to parents, to be spent in our online store on fruits, vegetables, herbs or food plants. Kids should help to choose the produce they want, just like a typical year.
