University Farm begins Friday organic market

A University Farm tractor pulls visitors travelling down the Sierra Oro Farm Trail last fall.

The University Farm will begin a Friday market on Jan. 31 as part of its Organic Vegetable Project.

The Organic Vegetable Project is a collaboration between campus and community members dedicated to growing and selling organic produce, according to the project’s website.

The market is a natural fit because students already work on the farm every Friday, and many can’t make the Wednesday market on campus because of classes, said Tina Candelo-Mize, the farm’s field manager.

The farm also sells its meat every Thursday and Friday, so the farm hopes to capitalize on the meat-lab traffic, Candelo-Mize said.

The Project expanded its 1 acre plot of land to 2 acres this semester, so it is producing more vegetables than ever before, Altier said.

The Friday market will be operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Candelo-Mize said.
