The UNM Sustainability Studies Program is bringing back the Lobo Growers’ Market for another season this Fall 2015.
The market will be held for six consecutive Tuesdays, 10AM-2PM, starting on September 15th. It will be located in the grassy area on the west side of Johnson Gym. Dates include: September 15, 22, 29 & October 6, 13, 20.
The Lobo Growers’ Market was originally developed by Sustainability Studies students in 2007, and has since been held as a student-managed event during several Fall semesters. Keila Gutierrez, an undergraduate in Biology and Sustainability Studies, will manage this fall’s market.
The market provides students, staff, faculty, and the surrounding community with an opportunity to connect with local farmers, value-added producers, and small business owners, and helps foster a relationship between the university community and our local foodshed and economy.
All are welcome to stop by and shop for prepared foods, value-added products, fresh vegetables, and more. Whether you’re looking to do some of your grocery shopping for the week, or to do something different on your lunch break, the market will provide a welcoming and lively environment in which to enjoy local products and entertainment. Keep up with the UNM Sustainability Studies Program on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and check out our blog at abqstew.com and website at sust.unm.edu for more announcements and updates.
We’ll see you there!
