MU hosted its first farmers market of 2010 on Thursday on Lowry Mall. For the first time, MU’s Wellness Resource Center is sponsoring a series of six farmers markets on campus, bringing locally grown products to college students.

The market will host vendors from Columbia and Boone County. Customers can choose from a variety of products, such as pastries from Grandma Barb’s Pies, honey from Walk-About Acres, meat from Missouri Legacy Beef and flowers and baked goods from Prayer View Bakery. Vendors can sign up for a booth at the market on the Wellness Resource Center’s website.

The farmers market will be held once a month on Thursdays on Lowry Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The next farmers market will be held May 20, and markets will continue to be hosted through October 28. Customers may pay with cash or check. Student charge is not accepted.
