Farmers Market

by Heinrich Hettig

Summer may bring sunny days, a cool breeze and even a pool party, but this year the summer calls for fresh food at BYU.

For the second year, the LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market will be supplying people with a variety of fresh produce. This is a great opportunity for many locals and students to come get their fresh produce every week through the summer and fall.

Last year was the first time the farmers market took place at the LaVell Edwards Stadium and according to Amanda Reynolds, farmers market supervisor, it was a great success.

"We exceeded our expectations," Reynolds said.

Reynolds said she wishes for people to come and enjoy the fresh fruit and vegetables they provide.

"Our goal was to create a market for locals and students to come get fresh food," Reynolds said.

This farmers market is unique in the sense that people can expect seeing the same vendors week after week. It's a win-win situation for the seller and the buyer.

"We guarantee the food is fresh and from local growers," Reynolds said.

The LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market will be located on the south end parking lot from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Thursday, starting July 28 through October 27 (update: Due to construction and Education Week this year the farmers market will not take place on August 18th). Come enjoy fresh foods this year at the LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market!
