[549] MTSU Student Farmers Market open noon to 3 p.m. Friday

MURFREESBORO — The MTSU Student Farmers Market will be open from noon to 3 p.m. Friday, June 21, at the Horticulture Center on Lightning Way across from the Tennessee Livestock Center. The event is open to the public.

Because of road construction at the intersection of Champion and Lightning ways, people shopping at the farmers market should arrive via Blue Raider Drive on the north side of campus or MTSU Boulevard on the east side of campus. A printable campus map can be found at

Available to customers will be tomatoes, yellow squash, potatoes, onions, kale, collards, beets and carrots. Honey from the MTSU farm also will be available.

The produce is grown and harvested by students, faculty and staff at the university’s farm and dairy in Lascassas, Tenn. Most of what is being sold will be harvested Friday morning.

Accepted forms of payment are cash and checks. No debit or credit cards are accepted.

The Student Farmers Market will continue every Friday until early fall.

For more information about the market, call the School of Agribusiness and Agriscience at 615-898-2523 or assistant professor Nate Phillips at 615-494-8996.
