MHS Student-Run Market Opens July 5
Student-run market offers fresh, local produce.
Starting Tuesday, July 5, the Hershey community can enjoy the fresh produce offerings of Milton Hershey School’s Project Market, located on Route 322 (Governor Road), east of Meadow Lane.
The student-run market is open to the general public Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Items available for purchase will include blueberries, zucchini, red beets, onions and more.
Availability of produce will change throughout the growing season. Items are freshly picked by MHS students and staff, who also participate in the planting and care of the produce.
This project is one of several internships available through the Agricultural and Environmental Education (AEE) program at MHS. The internship teaches students important lessons like customer service skills, how math applies to the real world, the importance of punctuality, and benefits of healthy fruits and vegetables. It’s another program that helps prepare students for college and career. Learn more about the AEE Program.
