new farmers market on campus

Thursday marks the second of four weeks that local farms will be hawking their fall produce on the University of Oregon campus.  More information by clicking here. Check it out and make it worth their while! They’ll only be around until Thanksgiving.

I am amazed and proud that U of O is making efforts to bring farms to the university.  Grab-n-Go, a convenience store set up in the dorms, is also purchasing produce directly from local growers.  Students can use their dining points to buy in-season apples and such.  I’ll bet that every single one of us who once had to live on dorm food is jealous.
