The Market Basket Tours program trains volunteers to guide children and interested adults through farmers’ markets using hands-on education techniques, including a specially-designed market Treasure Hunt.
School children, tourists, and locals will discover the wealth and variety of fresh, locally-produced ingredients during our Market Basket tours. They will have the opportunity to see, touch, smell, and taste some of the produce and products during the one-hour tour that includes a short shopping opportunity.
Market Basket Tours serves 4,500 4th graders in NYC public schools. Throughout the year, we will have opportunities for community members to be trained to lead our Market Basket Tours, so stay tuned for more information.
