Smells like (entrepreneurial) teen spirit

Oakwood Farmers’ Market showcases student-made goods

Occurring every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. between June 5 and Oct. 16, The Oakwood Farmers’ Market is a steadfast tradition of both Oakwood and its residents. Showcasing  produce, snacks, and craft goods from Dayton and the surrounding area, you’ll never be disappointed as you exit the market.

Once a year, a new group of vendors are selling on the market: kids. They get the opportunity to sell and showcase their talents and work, and maybe make a pretty penny along the way.

Some  students chose to participate, one of those being Sylvia Vanderburgh (12).

A veteran of the market, Vanderburgh mainly sells crocheted and knitted goods, but also has a few Oakwood-themed keychains and ornaments available. 

“This is my fourth year selling here,” Vanderburgh said. “We couldn’t do it last year, but I always have a good time.”

She recommends any willing Oakwood student to do the same.

“It’s a great experience, it’s super fun, and it’s a neat opportunity.”
