The Wesleyan Farmers' Market is a student-run initiative committed to supporting local agriculture, providing fresh, affordable, nutritious food, and building community in Connecticut. The market is held every other Wednesday behind Usdan University Center between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Seasonal produce made an appearance at the Sept. 22 market. Vendors sell local cheeses, breads, organic vegetable, flowers, spices, apple strudels, steroid-free meat, vegan and wheat-free cakes and brownies, herbal bath products, honey and more.
