Did you know that Farmers Markets (click on the links for more information)…

  • Preserve America’s rural livelihoods and farmland. Farmers markets provide one of the only low-barrier entry points for beginning farmers, allowing them to start small, test the market, and grow their businesses.

  • Stimulate local economies. Growers selling locally create 13 full time farm operator jobs per $1 million in revenue earned. Those that do not sell locally create 3.

  • Increase access to fresh, nutritious food. Several  studies have found lower prices for conventional and organic produce at farmers markets than at supermarkets. Due to this and other factors, 52% more SNAP households shop at farmers markets and from direct marketing farmers today than in 2011.

  • Support healthy communities. Farmers market vendors educate their shoppers. Four out of five farmers selling at markets discuss farming practices with their customers, and three in five discuss nutrition and how to prepare food.

  • Promote sustainability. Three out of every four farmers selling at farmers markets say they use practices consistent with organic standards.

This is a friendly reminder: the LU-Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 9:00 to noon at South Campus (Parking Lot, 900 Leslie Blvd.) until October 3rd.

There’s enough produce to come for! Beef, poultry, pork, cheese, eggs, honey, vegetables (variety of peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers etc.), baked goods (Zucchini and banana bread, etc.) are some of the items usually available.

All products come from local farmers. The great thing about farmers markets is that if you are ever unsure about what a product is, where it came from, or how it was grown, you only need to ask!

Below is what you’ll find this weekend at the market, and much more!  We hope to see you there!

  • Okra
  • Potatoes
  • A variety of peppers
  • Watermelons
  • Invermos Valley Farms will have pastured beef and also has great offerings for summer
