CLEMSON — Clemson University’s Farm-Fresh Market will return to campus this semester to offer local farmers and vendors a chance to sell their goods.
Starting Wednesday, Aug. 25, the market will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every other Wednesday through Oct. 20 on the field behind the University Union.
Organizer Ashley Adams, a junior English major from Forest City, N.C., said she hopes to see 10 to 15 vendors at each market this season.
“Entering its third season on campus, the Clemson Farm-Fresh Market will continue to make healthy, locally produced foods accessible to university students,” said Adams. “The market is an easy way for students to progress toward being better environmental stewards. Everyone involved benefits from buying local.”
Adams said the first market will include assorted vegetables, peaches, eggs, plants, figs, berries, salsas and a sustainable clothing company.
