Farmers Market on Campus
Fridays, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm | Mission Gardens

Throughout the summer, the Adobe Lodge will host a weekly farmers market, featuring organic produce. Marsha Habib, farmer and AmeriCorps volunteer with Bronco Urban Gardens brings seasonal produce from the BUG Farm and nearby farms in Hollister. Last week's market showcased summer squash, kale, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and beautifully sweet strawberries.

The Adobe Lodge often uses produce from the BUG farm, especially during the table service program on Wednesdays. Also, most strawberries served at the faculty dining venue are also from the BUG farm.
