Healthy Recipes + At-Home Science Experiments = Summer Fun!
UGA Extension Fulton County is excited to launch the inaugural Fulton Fresh Kids' Market in June 2020. The Kids' Market will have three components:
- Weekly market locations where Fulton County youth will receive a FREE bag of produce to take home.
- A weekly healthy recipe using the market's featured produce. Each bag of produce will iinclude a recipe card and a recipe video will be released each week on the Fulton County website and social media platforms.
- A weekly at-home science experiment using the market's featured produce. Each bag of produce will include a science experiment handout and kit which will be accompanied by a video which will be released each week on the Fulton County website and social media platforms.
How can you participate? Either stop by one of our market locations (Tuesday-Thursday) or follow along at home through the activity downloads and online videos. The first session of the market will run June 9 through July 9. Activities will be released weekly!

Our friends at the Fulton County Library System have compiled virtual library resources to complement our activities below! You do need a Fulton County library card to access most linked resources. Don't have a library card? No problem! Scan the QR code in the PDFs and you'll be taken directly to the online library card application. Thank you to our friends at Fulton County Libraries for these wonderful resources!
STEM kits will also be distributed to Fulton County libraries once they reopen to the public. Check back here for reopening dates and library locations where kits will be available for pick-up.
