Farmer’s Market returns to campus

After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Farmer’s Market has returned to the California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus. 

The Farmer’s Market in Lot 71 had students lined up for fresh produce, lemonade, and food stands on Wednesday, Sept. 14. 

“This is for students just to have something to do, and fresh produce and also a way to network with others,” said Jessica Mccrary, a student lead office coordinator at CSUMB. 

The Farmer’s Market gives students a new way of connecting with one another while also getting a chance to grocery shop for fruits and vegetables. 

“We’re going to have themes when it comes to events, so in future Farmer’s Market events, we’re gonna do a theme like in October, there’s going to be a pumpkin patch theme,” said Associated Students’ student assistant Stephanie Arteaga.

There will be a large variety of themed Farmer’s Markets, hopefully encouraging students to check out ones with a theme that pique their interest. 

The return of the Farmer’s Market has been met with a positive reception from many students. Some students also  shared their recommendations on what they would like to see from it in the future.  

“I’m so excited to have vegetables and would want to see this every week. I think if they brought in honey, that would be really cool. I think that would be fun,” said fourth-year Jamie Sanders.

“I really enjoy the flowers because I want to buy them. This isn’t like farmer’s market usual things to sell, but if they sold vases to put the flowers in, that would be helpful,” said first-year Hailey Alderson.

“My favorite part of the Farmer’s Market so far are these free tote bags we got that say ‘Associated Students’ and came with a reusable pack of wooden utensils. I find it very creative,” said fifth-year Riley Romero. “I would find it interesting to see students selling their own things here for those who have their own businesses.” 

The Farmer’s Market will be every Thursday from 2-6 p.m. until Oct. 27 for any students that want to check it out.
