TRITON TIDBITS FROM CAMPUS AND BEYOND

January 2005
Farmer's Market

 
     

Suddenly Tuesday isn’t just library grind and classes anymore. Saunter along Library Walk and Lyman Way between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each week and you’ll find yourself at the new UCSD Farmer’s Market. As well as fruits, vegetables and flowers, it features homemade salsas, kettle corn, tapioca teas, breads, tamales, knishes, crepes and olive oils. Launched in September, the idea is to provide students, faculty and staff with fresh produce and specialty food products previously unavailable on campus. Additionally, the market provides a festive atmosphere, says Bonnie Harmon, manager of the UCSD Sunshine Store and Farmer’s Market.

“It’s really a win-win situation. Customers get fresh and flavorful products and also support the hard-working local farmers,” says Janet Braver, owner of Grammy’s Granola, which also sells fresh breads and cookies. She bakes 60 pounds of granola and 50 loaves of bread a week for markets.

So what is the most popular product? “[Students] cleaned me out of pumpkin bread within an hour,” Braver says. “Must be their sweet tooth.” That would also explain the long, snaking line for crepes next door. Come see for yourself, and bon appetit!
