CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

On August 15, the Enactus team from Mount Mercy University will partner with community leaders and SCORE members to help consult vendors, at the Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers' Market, in order to improve overall business.

Team members will pair up with one of 11 market members.They will sit with the vendor and observe their sales, marketing, customer interaction, inventory and other aspects of their booth with an end goal of improving the business.

Not only will the students talk with the vendors, they will also get feedback from customers on what is going well and what could improve. The students will be with the same 11 vendors until the end of the season.
