Summer FLP: Read-aloud at the market


The Cambridge Public Library’s Julie Roach reads aloud at the farmers’ market for our weekly collaboration. 

It is a goal of the Food Literacy Project to reach more kids in the community. This was the first year of a collaboration between the Farmers’ Market at Harvard and the Cambridge Public Library Main Branch. The Market hosted the CPL for a weekly read-aloud and the CPL hosted the Food Literacy Project/Farmers’ Market for two educational demonstrations around healthy eating. The children’s librarians brought along some great books about food, including my favorite: To Market, To Market, by Nikki McClure.  

The collaboration was a good first step in attracting more parents and kids to our market, which often seems pretty grown-up.
