The Greening Princeton Farmers Market at Firestone Plaza will return this spring for six weeks, open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays from April 13 through May 18.
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. Expected vendors will provide a range of items including organic fruits and vegetables, grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range poultry and eggs, cheeses, breads, baked goods, ice cream and coffee.
The farmers market was launched in 2007 and runs in the 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. It is cosponsored by the Department of Dining Services, the Office of Community and Regional Affairs, the Office of Sustainability, the Department of Building Services, the Department of Grounds and Building Maintenance, the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and the Undergraduate Student Government Projects Board.
