University Farmers Market

The 2017 Farmers Market season is now open! Join us from 10:00am-2:00pm at the University Park Plaza at the corner or Paca & Pratt St across from the Medical Center.

The University Farmers Market offers fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of nuts, jams, baked goods, and prepared foods.

You can now use your Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits via the electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card at the market.

By accepting these benefits, formerly known as food stamps, we are further expanding access to fresh fruits and vegetables to those in our community. Credit and debit cards are now also accepted.
