Every Sunday, Menlo Park has a wonderful farmers market from 9am-1pm. This is a great place to take your children after a session at Mathnasium! The market is filled with fresh fruits and vegetables that can add freshness to your Sunday evening dinner.
It is a great place to take a stroll and enjoy the wonderful fall weather, even though it is still a bit hot in Menlo Park!
While at the farmers market, ask your child these questions to include a little more math in their day!
1) If peaches cost $2.99 per pound and you buy 3 pounds, how much money do you spend?
2) There are 20 cherries in one pound. If you buy 2.5 pounds of cherries, how many cherries will you have?
3) If a watermelon weigh 5 times as much as an orange, and an orange weighs 3 ounces, how much does the watermelon weigh?
The Menlo Park Farmers Market is the perfect place to go on a Sunday after Mathnasium, as it is only 5 minutes away. For more fun ways to learn math, visit the Mathnasium of Palo Alto – Menlo Park. Hope you are enjoying the fall, Menlo Park!
