When the farmers market returns to campus next week, organizer Sandra Riccio-Muglia hopes patrons notice a difference.
Director of events for the student centre, she has recruited new vendors to make it bigger, better, and fresher — and expects it to grow over its six-week season.
“We’ve got people lined up to sell baked goods, holistic items, produce, you name it,” says Riccio-Muglia. “A little something for everyone, so come support local and buy a treat.”
The market will run from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the student centre, Thursdays from Sept. 19 to Oct. 31. Riccio-Muglia adds that vendors will change and so suggests patrons “take a stroll” to check it out each week.
