From Aug. 29 through Nov. 21, a farmers market will be held on California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) campus in Lot 71. Students will have access to purchase local produce and food from 2 to 6 p.m. every Thursday.
This program is put on by Associated Students of CSUMB who are also responsible for other Basic Needs projects on campus, such as the food and toiletry pantries.
“I think it’s a good way for students without cars to get food without having to rely on the Dining Commons and Otter Express,” said sophomore Jorydnne England.
Fourth-year student Jessica Uhlenhop added, “It’s an accessible way to be sustainable.”
The farmers market is open to the public and all purchases must be made with cash, debit or EBT.
