Farmer’s Market Comes to Mississippi College
October 10, 2017
Mississippi College faculty, staff, students and other shoppers are invited to a Farmer’s Market on the Clinton campus.
The October 25 event will offer plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables at affordable prices. The outdoor activity near Nelson Hall runs from 2-4 p.m. It is open to the public.
Tim Cooper of the Morton-based Cooper Farm and Vineyard will be on hand to sell his healthy produce. The company has successfully operated in Scott County since 1981.
The MC Wellness for Life program is again sponsoring the Fall Farmer’s Market. Generous grants to Mississippi College from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield Foundation of Mississippi boosted wellness activities for the university’s family and Clinton community in recent years.
Other wellness initiatives included: the Mississippi College walking track and fitness equipment near the Choctaws soccer fields plus the disc golf course a few yards from University Place residence halls.
Piper Walters, the university’s Wellness for Life coordinator, says MC supporters enjoy the healthy benefits of the Farmer’s Market. It’s been a popular activity at Mississippi College for two years.
A kinesiology instructor, Walters thanks the Blue Cross & Blue Shield Foundation of Mississippi for their strong support of Mississippi College’s expanding wellness programs.
The foundation supports schools and cities statewide with grants to enhance healthy living choices.
It’s hard to predict the turnout for the Farmer’s Market at Mississippi College. No matter what the weather brings, the activity should draw a good turnout of people who love eating fresh food.
Another Farmer’s Market on the Clinton campus will be scheduled in Spring 2018.
