In partnership with the City of Hope through a grant procured from the National Institute of Health, Beardslee Academy hosted their first-ever Pop Up Farmers Market on Monday, January 28. Fresh organic fruits and vegetables were on sale at fair prices in a convenient location for families to purchase for their homes. Beardslee Academy parents were surveyed to identify the types of produce that are regularly used in their home cooking and these were the items sold. City of Hope provided the produce from local farmers to sell at the market and all proceeds will go to sustaining the market over time. The items available included bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, oranges, yellow onion, zucchini, tomatoes, grapefruit, and mandarins. The first market day was a huge success and all items were sold out in less than 30 minutes!
