Nebraskan April showers have already brought their May flowers, along with other summer- time produce. A select few Marian students have been gearing up to assist local farmers with their harvests. The girls have ties to the farmers markets that provide Omahans with the freshest produce possible.
Senior Molly Fisher’s dad, Mark Fisher, will have a stand at the Aksarben and Old Market farmers markets in the summer and fall, where they will sell homemade soap. Mr. Fisher has sold soap for the past four years at each location.
“My favorite memories of the farmers markets are honestly just meeting new people. I also really love seeing how many people are interested in the soap, because it’s really special for my dad,” Fisher said.
Fisher helps her dad out by playing the guitar to intrigue buyers.
Addition to the Fishers, Marian has more farmers market ties. Junior Megan and freshman Sarah Anderson have an uncle, Brian O’Malley, who is the head of one of Omaha’s culinary institutes. He will occasionally bring students and give food demonstrations on site at the farmers market at Village Pointe.
