It’s that time of year again! The weather is heating up, allergies are in full swing, fresh produce and flowers are in ample supply. Farmers’ market season is finally here and April 29, marks the start of Sunday Farmers’ Market at College View.
This year marks some big changes for this 14-year-old farmer’s market. Due to the popularity and growth in 2017 of The Old Cheney Road Farmers’ Market, it has been relocated and is now called Farmers’ Market at College View. This is the first year it is being held in the parking lot of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church on 48th and Prescott steets. Running for 27 weeks, this is the longest running market for the season and is fully ensured that it is a producer-only market, meaning everything there is made/raised/produced by the vendor.
Supporting the community is a big part of Lincoln and this farmers’ market. Its vision is something we all love about the Lincoln community and how it comes together to support each other. “Sunday Farmers’ Market at College View is an integrated institution in the community. We are committed to sustainably produced food for food security and a strong, healthy community. We support local farmers and producers by providing profitable direct market opportunities, education, and organizational stability.”
Prepare yourself for some delicious, fresh food and fun out in the sun (don’t forget sunscreen).
“The Sunday Farmers’ Market is here to connect farmers and eaters – that’s what we do! We strive to be both a successful venue for farmers, as well as a meeting point for the community to eat and engage around food.”
