Farmer's markets come to University of Cincinnati

At the University of Cincinnati students have organized themselves and created a group dedicated to "promoting sustainable and ecological design education, sponsoring student participation in workshops and conferences, and playing an active role in raising environmental design awareness in the community."


As part of that mission, Students for Ecological Design, hosts a farmer's market on UC's main campus. So far there have been two markets, with two left this spring quarter. At these farmer's markets vendors from Findlay and Northside markets come to campus to provide local products like baked goods, fruit and vegetables, jams, plants and assorted crafts to students.


The on-campus farmer's markets are not exclusive to UC students though as vendors are encouraging people in the surrounding neighborhoods to come as well.


The next two farmer's market will be held on Monday, May 18th and Monday, June 1st from 11am to 3pm on McMicken Commons (from Clifton Avenue, walk east into campus past McMicken Hall).

What a great idea! Fresh, organic foods were not something I thought of in college, but had I had access that close I would have been shopping there for sure. And so great to hear it will be open to the community too!

It's back! First one is October 5th from 10-3, and it will continue every Monday, as long as the weather allows!

We're planning on holding these farmer's markets again in the spring, starting in April. Keep an eye out for more information!
