MTSU Student Farmers Market will be Open Friday Afternoon

The MTSU Student Farmers Market will be open Friday, June 15, from noon until 3 p.m. at the Horticulture Center. Fresh produce and plants, grown and harvested by students, faculty and staff, will be available.

The sale site is located on Lightning Way across from the Tennessee Livestock Center. Accepted forms of payment are cash and checks, but no debit or credit cards. The Student Farmers Market, which is held every Friday until mid-August, is open to the campus community and general public.

An assortment of vegetables (strawberries, onions, potatoes, garlic, carrots, Swiss chard, cabbage, tomatoes, zucchini squash and more), MTSU honey, potted herbs and vegetables and nursery plants (perennials and shrubs) will be available.

The produce is grown at the University’s Experiential Learning and Research Center at the MTSU Farm and Dairy off Guy James Road in Lascassas.

Proceeds from the sale go toward farm expenses and to the MTSU Plant and Soil Science Club, said Dr. Nate Phillips, assistant professor in the School of Agribusiness and Agriscience.

Visitors should take either Faulkinberry Drive off Middle Tennessee Boulevard or Champion Way off Greenland Drive to reach the Horticulture Center on Lightning Way. To find parking near the sale site, a printable campus map is available at www.mtsu.edu/parking/Map_2011-2012.pdf.
