UConn rolls out a farmers' market

Market will remain open weekly through end of Conn. growing season.

July 16—UConn’s inaugural Farm Fresh Farmer’s Market opened to long lines and happy consumers July 12. Nestled between the new classroom building and the back patio of the Student Union, the Market will be open for business from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday from now until the start of the fall semester, when it will move to Fridays until the end of the growing season.

Director of Dining Services Dennis Pierce said the idea for a farmer’s market is a natural progression in the University’s efforts to provide healthful, locally grown foods in dining halls and cafés on campus.
