2014 “Eat Your Veggies” Art Competition

 This year we asked our talented Grade 3 through 5 artists to draw original artwork in the form of one character (animal, vegetable, fruit, adult, child etc) that encourages kids to eat fruits and vegetables. Their artwork had to include the slogan “Eat Your Veggies”. In addition they were asked to answer a number of questions that focused their attention on healthy eating. Seventy-four students from the St. Helena Elementary School, St. Helena Catholic School, St. Helena Montessori School, and The Young School submitted entries. 

Our young artists did a fabulous job presenting the judges with a very difficult task. Our Grand Prize Winner is the St. Helena Catholic School’s fifth grader, Gianna, whose artwork will adorn our adult, youth, toddler and infant apparel and a range of different merchandise for sale at the market’s General Store.

We offer a very big thank you to all the students who participated and to all of the parents and teachers who supported and encouraged the young artists!.

Top 10 Reasons to Shop at the St. Helena Farmers’ Market

  1. Support local farmers and the local economy.
  2. Reduce pollution and fuel usage. (Our fruits and veggies are grown in California—several of our vendors are from the Napa Valley.)
  3. Support growers who respect the environment and who protect natural resources.
  4. The produce is really fresh. (Many of our farmers pick just before coming to market—which makes produce tastier and more nutritious.)
  5. Help protect our farming heritage by saving heirloom varieties.
  6. Keep diversity alive in produce choices. Our farmers grow many old varieties not available in local supermarkets.
  7. Our local produce often costs less than produce sold at local stores.
  8. It’s a good excuse to meet friends for coffee and pastries.
  9. Maintain the heritage of this “Community Treasure,” founded in July 1986.
  10. It’s fun!
