Name or title of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:
LaFarm Market

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The LaFarm Market runs July-October and sells fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers grown at the Lafayette College Farm (LaFarm). All items for sale are grown, harvested, and sold by students working at LaFarm during the summer and fall semesters.
The LaFarm Market accepts cash and card and also sells pasta sauce and salsa made from LaFarm grown ingredients. The LaFarm market is well attended by faculty, staff, and students. The Lafayette Early Learning Center (day care) brought their kids during the summer to shop the fresh produce. They loved getting to buy carrots "with the fluffy tops!"
Customers are encouraged to bring their own bags, but paper bags are provided when they forget. HR helps promote the market as an opportunity for faculty and staff to take a walk outside, interact with others they might not normally see on campus, and purchase healthy foods for their families.
