PAE-T2-12: Farmers' Market
Director of University Sustainability
Does the institution host a farmers' market for the community?:
A brief description of the farmers’ market:
Since 2010, Purdue has partnered with Greater Lafayette Commerce to bring sustainable food offerings to students and staff. Each Thursday from mid-May to late October, local vendors sell fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies, fresh kettle-popped corn, homemade crafts, and annual and perennial plants. The number of growers and amount of produce on a given day depends on the natural progression of the growing season (list of offerings is available online). New changes this year include locally grown lunch offerings, occasional entertainment and a more pedestrian friendly location in the heart of campus, with access to green spaces and benches.
