Kids ages 12 and under are invited to become a New Leaf Market Co+op Explorer and be eligible to receive one free banana or orange per visit! To become a card-carrying Co+op Explorer, kids simply need to bring a parent or supervising adult to the customer service counter and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. Each child will be issued their very own super official Co+op Explorers card!

Here's how it works:
  1. Kids and parents stop by the customer service counter, where we keep the designated Co+op Explorers fruit basket.
  2. You and your child can pick their snack from the basket, usually full of apples, bananas, or oranges.
  3. Next to the basket, you'll find Co+op Explorers stickers. Take a sticker and put it on your child's shirt or jacket (that's so staff will know your child or children are fruit-eating Co+op Explorers, and they can account for it at checkout).
  4. What should you do with the banana peel/orange peel/apple core? No need to hold on to them, just toss them in any trash can. If you don't see one, just ask a staff person.
  5. When you check out, please be sure that your cashier sees your child's "I'm a Co+op Explorer" sticker, so that we can track participation in the program.

That's all there is to it! If you have any questions, please ask any staff member.

How can you make your weekly grocery trip more fun for you and the kids?
  1. Download and print our Treasure Map
  2. Bring the map and your kids to the Co-op
  3. Stop at the Customer Service desk for their sticker and free fruit
  4. Hand over the map and watch as your kids search the aisle, while you fill your cart

If your Explorer doesn't want to join the hunt, they can grab their own kid-sized cart! Let them fetch smaller items, that are low on the shelves. It keeps kids engagedand as a bonus, you don't have to bend over for groceries.

What about while you're eating in the Deli or outside?

We've got you covered there too. In the seating area, you'll find a Co+op Explorers station. It's stocked with coloring pages and crayons, to keep the little ones occupied while you relax and enjoy your meal. Feel free to take some supplies to an outside table, or even take some sheets home with you.
