Farmers market exceeds expectations
Monday, January 25, 2010
On five autumn Mondays the Atwood Mall came alive with vendors selling an array of locally grown vegetables, fruits, eggs and other fresh foods, along with homemade and home-canned goods to campus patrons. The Atwood Memorial Center Community Farmers Market was a celebration of initiative, sustainability and community spirit. Atwood staff planned and organized the University’s first foray into the farmers market concept of inviting local growers and producers to sell their items in the open air. University faculty and staff from the St. Cloud State Community Garden sold their products alongside other area growers.
