Kennesaw State University is leading the community in support of living a healthy lifestyle. One way it is accomplishing this is by offering a farmer’s market on its campus. The market is offering organically grown produce, as well as other products and goods.
The convenience is just one of the many benefits this Market offers students that attend the school. The university started the farmer’s market in fall 2012. The university is trying to offer students access to these organically grown foods, while supporting the local economy.
“All my food is made from scratch, contains no preservatives and contains no GMO,” said Noemi Espinoza, a local vendor who sells homemade tamales. “My passion is feeding people, the more I researched about food I realized how harmful it can be.”
She also said part of her mission is “helping educate people on the benefits of healthy eating.”
Many of the vendors here feel strongly about what they are selling, and are proud of their products.
“I appreciate what the school is doing here to help students,” Jason Terrell, a student and customer, said. “It is a win-win for all who are involved.”
Jason also said it was his first experience here and that he will definitely be back. Now back to you in the studio John.
