The Pardoning of the Turkey coloring sheet is available by clicking on this link for kids to download and deliver to Commissioner of Agriculture, Julius Johnson, at the Franklin Farmers Market this Saturday, November 21, 2015. The Pardoning of the Turkey coloring sheet will also be available for our younger shoppers on the day of the event at the designated art tent with a space to write a letter to Commissioner Johnson asking him to pardon our favorite feathered friend, Danny the Turkey of Earth Advocates Research Farm. Deliver your letter and colored turkey to the market before 9:45 a.m. this Saturday and receive a ticket to win a Thanksgiving Harvest Basket of fresh food and goodies from our farmers’ market!
Our farmers market believes in engaging our younger shoppers with games and activities that peak their curiosity of food and agriculture at an early age. The Pardoning of the Turkey coloring sheet gives kids the opportunity to participate in a fun Thanksgiving event focused on farming and giving thanks (and also encourages them to be creative and have fun!) We are especially excited to have our local children join in this event, and are excited to see all their individual letters and designs. Deliver the letters and colored turkeys by 9:45 a.m. to be considered by Commissioner Johnson before he delivers his speech granting amnesty to our beloved Danny the Turkey.
Herban Market located in Franklin, a local health food store, is our presenting sponsor for this event. With the financial support of our market sponsors our farmers market can offer fun activities for local area families and their children. The Franklin Farmers Market is a producers only market.
