Power of Produce (POP) Club
(suspended for 2020)
Hey, kids! Every week, you can check in at our Info Booth and receive $2 in tokens to spend on fruits, veggies, and food-bearing plants. It’s free to sign up. Yes, you read that right. Young shoppers get money every week to spend learning about where food comes from.
After just a few visits, your children might be prone to frequent bursts of affection for broccoli. This winner-of-a-program runs on the generosity of local community champion Firefly Real Estate, who has been sponsoring the club since 2017.
GREEN BEANS AND BLUEGRASS
Music at the Market
(suspended for 2020)

We Support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin
Every Saturday since 2011, TFM vendors generously fill bins with their unsold products, resulting in thousands of pounds of food being donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin. Most of this food is used to make convenient to-go meals for families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House and spend their days at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Having access to free meals made from fresh ingredients is an enormous help. When you support Tosa Farmers Market vendors, you support families in need.
