About the Event

Kids Day at the Market is such a fun day for kiddos to explore the Farmers Market, and a great way for the Junior League of Springfield to get our name out in the community. This year the Junior League of Springfield will have a booth for the kiddos to participate in, with food related activities. We will have two main activities to engage the kids: 1.) herb station - full size herbs for them to see, touch, and smell and we will inform them of the easy ways to use the herbs to cook or prepare food items (we will also have a flavored water for them including mint and limes for a refreshing way to cool them down and keep them hydrated) 2.) fruit and veggie sampling station - full size fruits and veggies for them to see, touch, and smell and then a little sample of the items for the kids to try.

Shift details:

The event starts for the public at 8:00 am. The first shift from 7:00 am to 9:00 am will consist of assisting with setting up the booth, prepping the herbs, fruits and veggies for samples, and engaging the kiddos with the booth activities for the first hour of the event.

Shifts from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm will consist of assisting the kiddos with the two stations and engaging with their parents as well.

The event ends at 12:30 pm, so the last shift from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm will consist of assisting with the booth activities, as well as providing assistance with tear down/clean up for the event.

Any questions, please email Community VP Eden Lawson Langiano at or call/text 217-414-8179.
