A brief description of the farmers’ market:

While we don't have the traditional farmer's market set up, FGCU serves as a pick up location for our nearby community from an 85-acre certified organic family farm in Southwest Florida.

The farm's organic produce is available directly to the local community in season, Fall through Spring, through a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm membership program. The farm produces over 50 different varieties of certified organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers, without conventional pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
