CCSD Giant Student Farmers Market
April 21, 2023,
9:30 AM - 1 PM
The Pavilion at Downtown Summerlin
Downtown Summerlin is excited to welcome back Green Our Planet’s Giant Student Farmers Market on Friday, April 21 from 9:30 AM to 1 PM under The Pavilion.
As the largest student farmers market in America, featuring more than 500 students from over 55 schools in Southern Nevada, students operate the market themselves, selling school-grown fruits, herbs, vegetables, and crafts to the public.
While growing their vegetables from seeds, students also learn how to run their own businesses and create a school-garden-based business plan. At the Giant Farmers Markets, they’re matched with bankers who coach them through customer service and negotiation as they sell their garden-grown fruits and vegetables to the community. Market day is a day that neither the public who buy, nor the students who sell, will ever forget. Contributions from the market will be reinvested into the school’s garden programs.
