Wednesday, May 16, GP will be hosting the 5th annual farmers and makers market. It features Mrs. Ashmon’s student who have been working the past few months to grow greenery, vegetables, and fruits of all kind. Other students have put in hard work making things at home such as bath bombs, tie dye shirts, tamales and much more!

Ashmon teaches agricultural science and anyone who takes her class is required to do an Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project. These projects can vary from entrepreneurship, placement, agriscience research, and agricultural service learning. The farmers and makers market is an easy and low stress way for students to practice entrepreneurship. Sophomore, Alex Lundin has done the market before and will be doing it again this year, “It’s a really good thing because we are able to bring the community together and enjoy the things students have put effort into,” Lundin said.

When you arrive at the market you can grab a patron card and walk from table to table seeing what you would like to purchase. Don’t be afraid to ask the students questions about what you should do or about what they are selling, they are happy to answer any questions you may have! Once you wish to purchase something, hand your patron card to the student and they will put down your total cost for their table. After you have gotten all you want, head to checkout and someone will be waiting to give you your total. You can pay with cash or check!

The market is held the same night as the Night of the Arts hosted by GP’s art students. Come stop by and see what talent GP has to offer!
