The sun is shining again, and that means its time for the farmer’s market. Though, the growing season is just getting started, the market still has plenty to offer with a variety of foods, goods and gifts.
This year, the Student Activities Office is offering a free shuttle service to the Tanana Valley Farmers’ Market every Wednesday.
Mary Farrell works at Facility services, and used her lunch hour to take advantage of the program. She was the first to get on the shuttle on May 25, the program’s first day.
“I like the farmer’s market,” said Farrell. “Its such a nice day, I thought I would catch the bus over there and have some lunch. Its fun.”
The Farmer’s Market Express leaves the Wood Center bus stop each Wednesday at noon and 1 p.m. with return trips at 12:45 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. The service is provided to all UAF affiliates including students, staff and faculty and is part of the SAO’s Explore Fairbanks program.
