Brown is so fabulous that we have a Farmer’s Market on campus! The Community Harvest program, managed by Louella Hill, coordinates with local Rhode Island Farmers to get locally grown foods into the Brown dining halls. Every Wednesday from 11a-2pm, the farmers have tables set up on Wriston Quad, located in front of the Ratty. Right now, they have apples, end of season peaches, corn, fresh goat cheese, end of season tomatoes (including zebra tomatoes!), and lots more. Last week, I got a bag of apples and some peaches- there really is nothing like an apple in September!….Alot of students volunteer at the farms and the market, helping the farmers set up tables and sell their produce. So I volunteered myself, of course! I’ll be starting next week!
