AS Farmer’s Market is back

With the Spring semester back in full swing, students snacked on delicious samosas and sipped boba tea while filling their tote bags full of fresh produce and flowers at the Associated Students’ (AS) Farmer’s Market recently. 

Every Thursday, the Farmer’s Market sets up in Lot 71 — the large parking lot across from the Otter Student Union – with the first one of the semester taking place on Jan. 26. 

There were four tables full of carrots, potatoes and other produce from Santa Clara County. In addition to groceries, the other ten tents sold fresh flowers, snacks and an assortment of jewelry. 

There was something for everyone, including the hungry students who picked up hummus, baked potatoes or fresh sliced fruit before sitting and enjoying the music and games from AS. 

The AS tent reminded students of benefits all Otters have access to this semester, such as discounted tickets to off-campus events, hammocks to borrow and a toilet pantry that provides hygiene products for free.  

Robyn DoCanto, a Basic Needs Programming Coordinator, helped students make the most of their benefits at the Basic Needs tent. 

This includes vouchers, a market match that matches one EBT dollar to a dollar that can be redeemed at the farmers market and many more resources listed on the Basic Needs section of CSUMB’s website. No matter your financial situation, assistance is available to you.

Missed this week? The farmers market returns every Thursday from 2-6 p.m. until May 5.
