Tufts Dining‘s third annual farmers’ market works in collaboration with the Friedman School’s New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (NESFP), which helps those with limited resources farm in Massachusetts. The market also partners with the United Teen Equality Center of Lowell (UTEC), an organization that works with underprivileged youth in Lowell. UTEC is also the source of the much-loved Magic Cookie Bars on campus – you just might find them at the next market!

Schpok also highlights various parts of Tufts Dining services, including the Tufts Farmer’s Market, which runs every Wednesday from 12pm – 2pm on the Campus Center Lower Patio until October 27.
