FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Farmers Market Set to Open Near Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus
On Monday, June 6, Loyola University Chicago’s new Farmers Market will open to the public, bringing sustainable and locally grown food to residents of Chicago’s 49th Ward. The goal of the market, conceptualized and planned by Loyola students enrolled in the University’s Solutions to Environmental Problems (STEP) class, is to increase residents’ relationship with the environment by demonstrating first-hand where their food comes from and by promoting the benefits of access to locally grown food.
Loyola students will also serve as volunteers at the market, which is set to run every Monday through October 17.
For more information on the market, including a list of vendors, visit LUC.edu/farmersmarket.
