Following its fall 2007 debut, the on-campus farmers market at Firestone Plaza (off Nassau Street opposite Labyrinth Books) will return this spring for six weeks, open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Tuesdays from April 15 through May 20. Members of the University and local communities will have an opportunity to purchase fresh locally grown produce and other goods from area farmers and businesses that use sustainable practices. Items available will include organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range poultry and eggs, seafood, cheeses, breads, baked goods, ice cream and coffee. The farmers market was launched over four weeks in September and October, and now is intended to run each fall and spring. It is an initiative of Greening Princeton, a student organization devoted to improving environmental sustainability, and is staffed by volunteers from the group. The PU Department of Dining Services will have a table at the market featuring cooking demonstrations by Princeton chefs. Visitors can learn more about sustainability efforts at the University through informational tables from groups such as Greening Princeton, the Office of Sustainability and the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI). University Health Services and the Frist Campus Center also will have informational tables. In addition, the market will feature live music performed by Princeton students and activities for children. For a list of participating vendors and for more information, visit www.princeton.edu/greening/market.
