Popular Market at the Mount set for December 9
by Report submitted · December 7th, 2017

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

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 decor, fused glass art, and more. Santa Claus will also make an appearance at the event.

Market at the Mount began 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.

"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."

This event is free, and all are welcome. Visitors are encouraged to park in the Prairie Drive Lot. For a map and directions, please go to
