On-Campus Farmers’ Market
The South Cumberland Farmers Market (Rooted Here) and Sewanee Dining are jointly sponsoring an On-Campus Farmers’ Market 1:30–4:30 p.m., today (Friday), May 12, on the lawn at Stirling’s. Customers can expect locally raised beef and pork, homemade pasta, washed and ready to eat salad mix and more—a great shopping opportunity for a graduation weekend feast! Sewanee Dining’s commitment to dedicating 30 percent of its budget to locally grown food and SCFM’s goal of making locally grown food readily available to consumers dovetail in a shared commitment to support local farmers. For many students, the market will be a rare opportunity to meet the farmers who raise the food they eat and, likewise, for community members who purchase online from SCFM and never have face to face contact with the farmers. All area farmers are invited to participate, not just those affiliated with SCFM.
