A brief description of the farmers’ market:

The Tufts Farmer's Market occurs on Wednesdays from the beginning of September to the end of October. They offer fresh locally-grown produce from Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition’s New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (a group that helps local farmers get started by providing access to information, resources, training and technical support), baked goods from a local pastry shop, and some free samples. Tufts money on our IDs, "Jumbopoints", are also accepted and people are encouraged to bring their own bag.
