Save the date! Holy Rosary High School (HRHS) is excited to welcome the public once again to its Raiders’ farmer’s market.

Now in its second year, the cash-only market will take place from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 30, and feature 26 vendors offering products ranging from stickers, necklaces, henna tattoos, tomatoes, spider plants, crochet items, and much more.

The idea behind the event is to shop local while also showcasing and supporting the many talented entrepreneurs within the halls of the school.

“We know we have so many great things going on and so many talented students at our school, so it’s nice to be able to showcase different skills we have, different artists, musicians, so they can showcase their talents as well as build a few entrepreneurial skills like learning how to create a business and make a little money on the side,” said HRHS phys-ed teacher and market organizer Becky Grassl, noting some new vendors this year.

“We have a few different vendors this year including some Filipino desserts as well as plants through our botany project. Our environmental class has a botany project, so they have a whole bunch of plants they’re going to be selling, including tomatoes and peppers.”

The market is being organized by HRHS’ Student Leadership Council (SLC) something Grade 10 student, Cooper Leckie, is looking forward to.

“I’m very excited and it’s a great way to get the school together to support our student-owned businesses,” said Leckie, while thinking about which vendor she’s most looking forward to.

“I’m always excited for the food; they always make really good food,” she said. “Some of the crafts are also really good. Everyone who’s entered a booth is very talented.”

Grade 8 student Eden Moffat is excited to showcase her business, Simply Soothing.

“I crochet, I do macramé, I can knit, but for this market, I’ll be mainly doing macramé, which is my main passion,” said Moffat, explaining she made the sweater she was wearing during the interview.

“I joined the market because it seemed like a school opportunity, and I wanted to represent my school as an artist. I really find it cool that I’m younger and starting this; it’s nice to show people I’m capable of doing the business while I’m in school.”
