People sit on the lawn outside the Hixson-Lied Science Building, where the Creighton Farmers Market was held. The farmers market featured food and products from local vendors around Omaha. It was held on April 23.

The Farmer’s market at Anderson Plaza was an event where students gathered to sup- port small local businesses and get educated on the campus wide push for sustainability.

The Creighton Students Union and the Office of Sustainability formed a committee for the first time this year to bring back an event that much of the student body thought highly of.

“In the fall of 2019, CSU put together a farmer’s market and it was a huge success,” said CSU president Parker Rieffenberger.

“We couldn’t have picked a better day for this, it’s beautiful outside,” Rieffenberger continued. April 23 was a sunny day without a cloud in the sky for most of the afternoon.

Taylor Wiley, a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences, said, “I came down to get some fresh air and fresh food, and I found both.”

There were six vendors, a mobile boutique and two food trucks at the farmer’s market.

Lauren Beth’s Popcorn offered freshly popped kettle corn. Scott’s Pico sold premium blend salsa.
