HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University student organization Reconnect will
sponsor a farmers market in front of the Student Union on Wednesday, October 26, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will feature food sales from area farmers, food samples, ceramics, jewelry, beef jerky, henna, and much more. Vendors include Sacred Earth Bars, Berryhill Farms, Simple Works’ all-natural bath and body products, and Tea Cookies.
“The Reconnect Farmers Market is an event where you can interact with local farmers and vendors, eat a healthy and fresh lunch, or pick up some homemade jewelry or bath products from your fellow students and other vendors. It’s a way to shop local and support healthy food choices without having to leave campus,” said Alexis Taylor, vice president of Reconnect.
Student vendors are encouraged to participate by emailing Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org. A table and tablecloth is provided at no charge.
A student environmental club, Reconnect participates in the Real Food Challenge, a national effort among college students to promote the use of locally grown, healthy and sustainable food products.
