Entertainment & Education

 

In addition to a wide variety of California grown farm products and prepared foods, the Sunday Main Street Farmers Market provides curated entertainment and hands on educational activities for market customers to enjoy.  The intent is to provide locations within the Market where educators and performers can engage customers in a fashion consistent with and complimentary to the Farmers Market mission.

Market Mission:  The Santa Monica Farmers Markets are committed to promoting healthful eating and sustainable agriculture in California by providing fresh agricultural products from small farms to urban customers, thereby building community and preserving California farmland.

Past activities have included:

  • Weekly musical performances
  • Face painters
  • Balloon twisters
  • Story time
  • Arts and crafts
  • Robotics
  • Magicians
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Seedling planting
  • Book signings

Aside from weekly musical performances, all proposed activities should be hands-on and interactive.  Proposals that closely tie in with an agricultural, sustainability or healthy eating themes are highly encouraged.
