The goal of the Nimitz Farmers Market is to promote personal growth, career success, and sound entrepreneurial principles for Nimitz agricultural science students, as well as build a stronger school-community relationship. The funds collected from vendor registration will directly benefit the Nimitz FFA Chapter.
Nimitz High School has several student run enterprises that will be on-site of the Farmers Market to offer their services. Nimitz Pet Care will be open to community members and offer grooming services, nail trims, and baths (owners must bring proof of rabies vaccination). Nimitz Floral Design Studio will be selling pre-made fresh and silk flower arrangements. Nimitz Horticulture will be hosting their spring plant sale out of the school greenhouse and the new community garden will be open for exploration. Additionally, Nimitz Culinary will offer a variety of street foods and refreshments for sale.
Outside vendors from the community are also invited to join the market. The farmers market will be advertised throughout Irving ISD and through local media outlets.
