Incoming Fryelands Elementary School kindergartner Chloe Moyes, 5, holds up her play money as she watches Cherisse Webb of Willie Green Organic Farm bag up a pound of green beans that Chloe was buying during the kid-friendly farmers market at Frank Wagner Elementary School in Monroe on Wednesday Aug. 13. Presented in conjunction with the free summer lunch program, this special market was organized by Monroe schools’ Dining Director Dana Daniel with the generosity of local growers Caruso Farms of Snohomish, Willie Greens of Monroe, Garden Treasures of Arlington and Bright Ide Acres farm. Daniel’s team provided youth with play money to buy fresh fruits and vegetables as part of the program’s focus on healthy eating. Produce such as strawberries, blueberries and carrots were hot sellers as more than 200 children and parents participated. While the event focused on healthy eating, the children also had a lesson in mathematics as they had to count out their money and weigh their produce.
