Growers’ Market Provides Fresh Start to Students’ Weekend
Students in the School of Business & Hospitality’s Catering class made their annual visit to the Williamsport Growers Market, where they cooked free samples for the public. Dishes – all made from products donated by the growers and by Helmrich’s Seafood – included swordfish, salmon, cheesesteaks, egg rolls, carrot cake, red-beet chocolate cake and crepes. In addition, eight students provided a pumpkin-carving demonstration on-site, with their results judged by children. The Growers Market experience gives students the opportunity to interact directly with those who produce the ingredients they use and nurtures the “Buy Fresh Buy Local” relationship.
