News-in-Brief: UC Davis East Quad Farmers Market today

Today is the first day of the UC Davis East Quad Farmers Market at the Silo.

The on-campus farmers market, which used to be on the Quad, is a place where students and faculty can buy fresh produce. The market is co-sponsored by UC Davis Stores (formerly UC Davis Bookstores), Campus Recreation and Unions, Student Health and Counseling Services, Students for Sustainable Agriculture, UC Davis Dining Services, the Davis Farmers Market and the Davis Food Co-op.

“It’s going to be a festive atmosphere, more fun than walking a produce aisle,” said Jason Lorgan, associate director of the UC Davis Stores, in a press release.

Opening day festivities will include music, face painting and button making.

The market will take place every Wednesday through June 6, from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
