It’s prime growing season, and fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables soon will be available for purchase on UT’s Health Science Campus.
The first Toledo Farmer’s Market of the season will be Wednesday, July 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in a new location this year where vendors will set up in the loop drive in front of the Block Health Science Building and the Center for Creative Education. The biweekly sale will be held through mid-October, weather permitting.
Wellness Coordinator Jocelyn Szymanski says hosting the market on Health Science Campus encourages healthy eating among students, staff and members of the community.
“The biweekly timing of the markets is perfect for keeping your home stocked with in-season produce,” she said. “Shoppers also can pick up fresh baked goods, and the crowd-favorite popcorn also will be back this year.”
Cash, credit cards and Ohio Direction/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cards are accepted.
