MTSU’s Student Farmers Market will offer fresh late-spring vegetables and more, direct from the MTSU Farm, this Friday, June 2, in the final market opportunity for this season.
The market, which is open to the public, is set from noon to 1 p.m. Friday at the Horticulture Center on Lightning Way across from the Tennessee Livestock Center. A printable campus map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParkingMap.
This week’s shoppers will find kale, collard greens, carrots, new potatoes, squash, zucchini, green tomatoes, and green, red and Savoy cabbage, along with herb transplants that include sweet basil, lemon basil, purple opal basil and Italian parsley.
The market also will have hanging baskets ready to decorate your patio or deck for the summer.
All produce is harvested fresh each Friday morning before market time.
Shoppers should bring cash or a personal check made payable to MTSU; no debit or credit cards can be accepted.
The produce is grown and harvested by students, faculty and staff at the university’s Experiential Learning and Research Center, also known as the MTSU Farm and Dairy, located at 3001 to 3211 Guy James Road in Lascassas, Tennessee.
