Fresh. local. sustainable. award winning.

The Kennesaw State University Farmer’s Market was created to offer the KSU community the opportunity to purchase fresh, locally, naturally, and organically grown produce, products and goods from local farmers, growers, businesses and artisans. Our purpose is to provide support for healthy growing practices, strengthen the local economy, encourage healthy lifestyles, educate the KSU community on sustainable agriculture, and support the overall sustainability efforts of Culinary Services and Kennesaw State University.

The KSU Farmers Market began in Fall 2012, as an exciting addition to KSU’s Culinary Sustainability Initiatives. The Market is sponsored and supported by Culinary Services and R.C. Paul, Director of Sustainability for Kennesaw State University. Also with the initial help from a group of students from KSU’s Environmental Sustainability class, this initiative became a reality. The market volunteers are overseen by the Students for Environmental Sustainability organization or S.E.S. S.E.S collaborates with the department of Culinary and Hospitality Services. S.E.S offers farmers and producers assistance with business planning and conducts research regarding farmers market “Best Practices”.

The KSU Farmer’s Market is a producer-only market where everything at the market has been grown, raised or made by the seller which helps to ensure fair prices for both vendors and consumers. Our Farmer’s Market enable farmers the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their customers and cultivate consumer loyalty.
