Why a farmers market?
Operations and Facilities Maintenance Department, Human Resources, and the Office of Sustainability have partnered to bring a weekly farmers market to the School of Medicine campus. The WUSM farmers market is a sustainable practice that supports our local economy as well as our community’s health and wellbeing. Local vendors providing local goods to our community creates a circle of mutual benefit while protecting the environment.
When is the market?
Thursdays 10am-2:00pm year-round
Due to construction in Hope Plaza, the market has been relocated to the UHSP Quad, just east of Hope Plaza, for the spring through fall.
In inclement weather and winter, the market will take place in McDonnell Pediatrics Lobby.
Each week there is always a new experience to be had as vendors bring items that are in season and new products as they reach peak quality. Some of our vendors include:
