This summer, a farmers market has opened at the Boys and Girls Club on Cherry Avenue in Charlottesville. It's a market that's run by the members of the club, who are all kids.
The Local Food Hub partners with the Boys and Girls Club to put together the "pop up markets" every Friday.
"When parents come to pick up the kids they have a beautiful farmers market to shop at, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to take home, to put in school lunches, to cook up for dinner," said Emily Manley, the outreach and development director for the Local Food Hub.
"They make everything look tempting and delicious and beautiful," she said.
The kids choose the foods and pick the prices, the Food Hub delivers it in the afternoon, and the kids set up, and start selling.
"It's actually really fun because usually when you get into something you're not that involved, you're just thrown in and you don't know what's going on it's nice to actually cooperate in things like these and seeing that people liked the things that you chose and being proud of it also," said Emily Padilla Chicas, a Boys and Girls Club member.
All funds raised from these markets go towards the Keystone Club, which several members of the Boys and Girls Club are a part of. They're raising money for a trip to trip to the National Keystone Conference in Atlanta, GA.
"They love doing this, it teaches them how to run a business and basically they operate everything." said Jasmine Boling, a staff member at the Boys and Girls Club.
The market takes place each Friday, from 3 p.m. to 5:30 pm, and will continue through August 3.
