The Farmers Market is at Centennial Mall (between Stanley Coulter Hall and Wetherill Laboratory of Chemistry). Every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., vendors serve fresh lunches including anything from grilled burgers, pork and chicken to gourmet salads. Multiple vendors also offer a wide array of desserts and other items, including breads, pies, popcorns, hummus, and even frozen meats and sausages to take home. The market offers fruits and vegetables in season, so as the summer continues, new choices will appear.
 
People across campus have enjoyed the food, produce, and atmosphere that the Farmers Market brings. On Thursday, musical guest Paul Foster will be returning to the market.
