The following is a guest post from Jordan Galerkin, UC Davis Farmers Market Student Marketing Assistant, and junior year Community and Regional Development major:
The UC Davis Farmers Market returned for fall on Wednesday, October 2nd. The market will run Wednesdays from 11:00am-1:30pm on the Silo Union Patio during the academic fall quarter. The market continues to provide fresh and healthy food options to a busy campus community.
Of course, there will be plenty of fresh produce, including a variety of fruits and vegetables, nuts, olive oil, honey, and more! This fall’s Farmers Market vendors include Cabral Family Orchards, Fruit Factory, Mt. Moriah Farms, Shoup Farms, Williamson Farms, UC Davis Student Farm, Toledo Farms, and Bullfrog Farms.
There will also be food vendors at the market with various lunch offerings. The ASUCD Coffee House will have a booth offering ‘CoHomemade’ pastries and coffee for just $1 each. Shah’s Halal Food Truck offers gyros and rice dishes, and Star Ginger Food Truck offers banh mi sandwiches and noodles. In addition, the Silo Union has several restaurant offerings.
Since 2007, the market has been a symbol of UC Davis’ commitment to sustainability and healthy lifestyles. It’s a zero-waste event, so don’t forget your reusable bag! Students can also become zero-waste volunteers at the market. Sponsors of the market include UC Dining Services, UC Davis Campus Recreations and Unions, the Davis Farmers Market Association, the Davis Food Co-op, UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services, ASUCD Coffee House, UC Davis Stores, UC Davis Fire Department, and UC Davis Student Housing.
The UC Davis Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability – Waste Reduction team, Campus Center for the Environment, Environmental Policy and Planning Commission (EPPC), Health Education and Promotion, KDVS, Occupational Health Services, UC Davis Staff Assembly and UC Davis Student Nutrition Association are friends and supporters of the market.
