As part of an ongoing effort to expand the community’s commitment to sustainable practices, APU Dining Services will be starting a farmers market on Wednesday, August 7th from 3-6 p.m. The initial market will be small, but we have every intention of developing into a larger market with more variety. Our hope is to bring the community together by providing sustainable foods, local and imported, and to promote sustainability awareness as well as decreasing the demand for GMO foods found in most supermarkets.
We will offer vegetables from Spring Creek Farm, Alaska Sprouts, and other organizations. We are also working with Organically Grown Company to provide other sustainable, organic foods, namely fruits, that are not available locally. The supply will be limited for the first few weeks; please come early to ensure you can choose among a variety of produce. Feel free to contact Dining Services with questions or comments; we are always be open to suggestions for future items or setup and encourage you to make requests so we can offer the most desirable produce.
Spread the word and help us promote the sustainable foods industry in our community!
