The Power of Produce (POP) Club is a farmers market-based program designed specifically to teach children about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation through fun activities.
This week, visit the POP booth to taste new vegetables, take part in a seasonal produce scavenger hunt and try to identify fruits and veggies in a blind-folded taste test! Participation in these fun activities earns kids $2 POP bucks to be spent on fresh produce. There are only a few weeks left to earn POP bucks, so be sure to come see us this weekend.
This free program is sponsored by our partner LDS Hospital and the Farmers Market Coalition. Visit the POP Booth in the center of the park.

Upcoming Music at the Market
Calendar: Music at the Market
Robert Macdonald (bagpipes, Irish flute, tinwhistles, and Irish banjo) is the founder of Annie's Romance and has been playing Celtic folk music for fifteen years. He holds a M.S. in folklore from Utah State University where he studied folk music and tune composition.
Liz Macdonald (fiddle, vocals) started playing violin at age five and was first introduced to Celtic folk music at age thirteen in a workshop with master Cape Breton fiddler Jerry Holland. She joined Annie's Romance as fiddler, but quickly took up the lead singing duties for nearly all songs. She has a unique ear for discerning and reproducing the nuances of Irish and Scottish vocal stylings.
Marvin Payne (guitar, mandolin, vocals) has been playing guitar and singing songs for over half a century, with sixteen albums of original material and a whole lot of writing for other widely-published projects to show for it. But Annie’s Romance is his first immersion into playing Celtic folk, and he loves it.(Check out marvinpayne.com)
Michelle Adams (flute, vocals) was a member of the folk band the Flying Nancies before joining Annie's Romance. A classically trained flutist from the age of eight with a natural ear for harmony and arrangement, she contributes much of the atmosphere and texture to the band's intricate arrangements.

Singer-Songwriter Michelle Moonshine's original songs have an upbeat tempo, catchy vocal lines and heartfelt lyrics; but it's her unique voice that truly engages a listener at a performance. Her timbre can be described as incredibly sweet and whimsical, and yet is still saturated in feeling that makes you want to stop and listen to every word. During her four years of performing, Michelle has garnered recruitments from NBC's The Voice in 2014 (to which she turned down after being accepted); and from America's Got Talent in Fall 2015 which is still ongoing. Within that time she has put a national tour under her belt and honed her craft in producing her own blend of Country-esque Americana. Michelle regularly performs solo as well as with her band as both a three and four piece with new member John Davis on electric guitar, lap steel and backup vocals. In the rhythm section is Goose on the drum kit and Bronk on the upright bass, who both have some classical training which adds to the dynamic. With a fully funded Kickstarter, they completed their first album and plan to tour their new release this spring.
