Jed Tucker, 5,hands a carrot to a customer at the Mill Street Farmers’ Market in Yarmouth on Thursday, Aug. 30. Tucker and other children ages 4-11 are part of the Garden Explorers summer camp at the Yarmouth Community Garden. They were invited to join the regular vendors outside the 317 Main Music Center as part of the market’s weekly practice of inviting local nonprofits to participate and promote themselves.

Christine Slader, coordinator of the children’s garden at the Yarmouth Community Garden, helped children in the Garden Explorers summer camp as they cashed out customers at the Mill Street Farmers’ Market on Thursday, Aug. 20. Proceeds from the Garden Explorers’ sales will help the program buy seeds next year.
