Scents of Indian and Mexican food, hand-crafted jewelry, farm stands heaped with summer produce and live music are a few of the sights and sounds of the student-organized Farmer’s Market at Cornell, which takes place every Thursday until Oct. 25 on the Ag Quad from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Farmers’ Market at Cornell has more than twice as many vendors this fall compared to its opening season in 2011, according to Beth Leuin ‘13, volunteer coordinator. Vendors include Tellez Mexican Food, Greenstar, Silent City Coffee, Dilmun Hill Student Farm and many others.
“I was so excited to hear Cornell was going to have its very own farmers’ market, bringing fresh and local foods to students who may not otherwise have access to them,” said Leuin.
Audrey Boochever ’13, and Katerina Athanasiou ’13 are co-managers of the market, while a team of students coordinates vendors and marketing.
“There is no place I’d rather be than a farmers’ market on a beautiful day. Wonderful food responsibly grown, great music and happy people all in the same place – what could be better?” said Leuin.
