"When kids want a day out, let them help buy fresh food"

Fresh Fiction Review

Meet Me At The Farmers’ Market
Lisa Pelto

Reviewed by Clare O'Beara
Posted October 6, 2018


This short and cheerful book for children introduces young Sophie who is off to MEET ME AT THE FARMERS' MARKET with her mom. They go every week and this book with bright illustrations by Paula S Wallace shows us what they find.

Sophie meets friends regularly and they chat, buy treats, see dogs and musicians, and have fun buying fruit, vegetables and eggs. I like that all this occurs in the open air as compared to a mall, but the city is in the background. The point of the trip is to have an experience and buy foods, rather than to acquire goods. The fresh food changes with the seasons and a few examples are given. This will make children think about how and where food is grown, and they can see that it does not just appear in the shops in plastic containers. I would have liked more crafts such as lavender sachets and honey.

This would be a good starting point for a class exercise to read the book, write about a trip and compare the two. For instance, some farmers' markets do not allow dogs except service dogs, so that would be a point of difference to Sophie's day. This lively account MEET ME AT THE FARMERS' MARKET by Lisa Pelto will be enjoyed by kids from four up to nine.

Sophia loves going to the Farmers Market every week. There are lots of things to see and do, and when she meets up with her friends, she loves it even more.

Children of all ages will enjoy the beautiful watercolor illustrations and engaging story of Sophia's fun day at the market.
