Popular Market at the Mount set for Dec. 9

Mount Mercy University’s student Enactus team will host the fourth annual holiday Market at the Mount, Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Hennessey Recreation Center Gymnasium, located on the university’s campus. The student-organized event will bring more than 70 local vendors to campus.

Open to the public, vendors include services, artisans, crafters and food vendors as well as family-friendly activities. Products include refurbished furniture, jewelry, children’s books and toys, vegan pastas, quilts, home décor, fused glass art, cupcakes, wood art, stationery, soaps, quilts, and more. Santa Claus will also make an appearance at the event.

Market at the Mount began in 2014 as a useful teaching tool for students, providing the opportunity for students and vendors to collaborate and learn about best business practice. Focused on community empowerment, Enactus takes no profit from the event. Vendors set up shop free of charge and work with students on skills like product promotion and shop marketing.

“We want to help out the community, and especially small businesses and vendors,” said Enactus member Wyatt Cady. “We know that a lot of businesses have a hard time selling their products over winter, and they appreciate every opportunity to sell their goods and products.”

The market also gives the community an opportunity to find local, handmade gifts in one location. This event is free, and all are welcome. Visitors are encouraged to park in the Prairie Drive Lot.
