Oxford Community Market Goes To College: Campus Farmers’ Market
An Oxford Community Market Event
Thursday, April 21st, 11:00-2:00 PM on Business Row (Galtney-Lott Plaza)
The Oxford Community Market is hosting a campus Farmer’s Market! This market is an opportunity to promote local, sustainable food to students, faculty, and staff. As a part of the Office of Sustainability’s Green Week celebration, this event serves the purpose of bringing together the Oxford community to promote awareness about food choices and the food industry, and why it matters.
With over 15 different vendors, participants can expect to find a variety of seasonal produce, baked goods, and sweet treats; all while winning prizes and learning about local foodways from our community experts!
