The Thursday Market returns this week!
We will be open from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm Thursday, June 6. The location is the same – The Dickinson Parking Lot.
Vendors planning to attend will have pasture raised beef, chicken, eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuces and spring vegetables. There will be local honey, breads and baked goods, and fresh mushrooms (grown right here on campus!). It’s a great chance to pick up some fresh, locally produced food to take home after work.
Here is what some of our vendors will be bringing on Saturday.
Invermos Valley Farms will have pastured beef and has new offerings of summer sausage and thin-sliced sirloin in 16 oz. packages (perfect for breakfast steaks or philly cheese steaks)
