Does the institution host a farmers' market for the community?:

A brief description of the farmers’ market:

The University has a Farmers market every Friday from 12:00 to 1:00. All products are organic and processed by students in the agriculture department as part of one their classes. Generally, produce is brought in from the organic garden the University manages, as well as fruit and free-range eggs. The Farmer’s Market also works as a Co-op where people can ask for produce in advance via email.

The Farmers Market is limited to University’s operations and schedule and it usually runs out of food pretty quickly because produce is limited to the production of the organic garden the Agriculture department oversees.

The public does have access, but the market is not publicly publicized only word of mouth.
