This Saturday May 16 will mark the third season of the University Community Farmers Market on the South Campus, with fresh food and local products. With five new vendors and wineries on various weeks, this year’s market promises to be better than ever.

Held from 8:00am – 1:00pm each Saturday through October 17, except July 4, the market is set up on the Main Street sidewalk at Kenmore Avenue. Attendees can park for free in the Allen, Main and Bailey parking lots on the South Campus, directly behind the market.

 

This year’s vendors include last year’s returnees of Heaven’s Gift Just For You home and personal fragrance products; Independence Hill produce, jams and jellies; James McHenry produce; Pasta Temptations and Sweet Greek Desserts.

 

New vendors include Fairy Cakes cupcakes; Graves-DeMario Maple Syrup; Ken’s Maple Products & Honey; Wild Mountain Organics body care products; Cheese Needs artisan cheese and local wineries selling and sampling their wine from 11:00am – 1:00pm.

 

The first Saturday of the month will have special events for attendees on topics such as healthy living, community building, safety and gardening. They will be held on June 6, July 11, August 1, September 5, and October 3.

 

Come one week or all, and support the local community at the market.
