On campus farmers market opens today

By Alex Cragun, Staff Writer

The U will open a farmers market on campus today, providing locally-produced fruits and vegetables for sale.

Harmeet Blanchard-Kaur, co-director of the student group Sustainable Environments and Ecological Design (SEED) and part of the U farmers market manager team, said the farmers market is part of their efforts to promote healthy lifestyles among students.

“One of the ways to do that is providing access to fresh fruits and vegetables,” she said.

The market will also offer locally-grown coffee and other items provided by different venders.

U President Michael Young and Luke Garrott, a political science professor and city councilman for Salt Lake City’s District Four, will welcome the market to the U at noon and discuss the importance of buying local.

The market will be held on the west Webster’s Lawn, which is east of Pioneer Memorial Theatre. It will be held every Thursday starting today until Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For more information on the market or getting involved, call the Bennion Community Service Center at 801-581-4811.
