- Barons Market Murrieta invites neighborhood kids to adventurous cuisine quest
- Sample scavenger hunt to raise funds for neighborhood Boys and Girls Club
Murrieta CA— Trying new foods can be scary – especially at age six. Barons Market, Murrieta invites dozens of young, picky eaters to transform into adventurous foodies as they taste ten sample portions of unusual yet delicious foods throughout the store. The family-owned market created this cuisine quest for kids and their parents to say hello to untraditional – and sometimes spooky – fresh foods and kiss boxed macaroni-and-cheese dinners goodbye.
From 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. on October 25, witches and ghouls will weave through the isles of Barons Market to discover sample portions of untraditional foods, including rainbow carrots with edamame hummus. As they venture into the produce section, bright pink dragon fruit awaits tiny taste buds. Kids can also explore gummy hibiscus, quinoa salad, ice cream with flavored balsamic vinegars and spooky kombucha. For every child in attendance, Barons Market will donate to the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest County.
According to Rachel Shemirani vice president of marketing at Barons Market, it’s important to educate children about different options to push the boundaries of normal snack food, opening a new world of possibility for school lunchboxes and afterschool snacks. The sample scavenger hunt allows families to test all-natural foods without committing to an entire bottle of kombucha. It may even inspire parents to offer all-natural products to trick-or-treaters this year.
“Choosing new foods means breaking old habits, and that can feel intimidating at first if it doesn’t feel fun,” says Shemirani. “With this scavenger hunt, our neighbors can explore new foods to bring to the dinner table while making shopping a fun family activity and giving back to our local community.”
Barons Market opened its Murrieta location in January 2016, reflecting the community’s culture in the design elements, layout of the store and all-natural selection of foods.
Barons hopes to see local families at Murrieta’s first-ever scavenger hunt. All families are welcome to head to Barons Market’s Murrieta location at 40545 California Oaks Rd from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. for the sample scavenger hunt. To learn more about Barons Market, visit www.baronsmarket.com
