Spud Club

Spud Club_ LogoThere's plenty of fun for kids at the Downtown Evanston Farmers' Market this season! The Spud Club offers free, fun activities for children ages 2 to 10 years old. 

Children can join the fun by registering at the Spud Club Tent. They'll then receive an ID card and badge holder. Every time they come to the market, they'll get a punch on their card. After seven punches, they'll get to select a special gift from our market bucket.

Stop by the Spud Club Tent for great children's activities all season long. We hope to see you there!
