It didn't happen without some bumps along the way, but the reception from the campus community was amazing. Despite the rainy afternoon. people came out in droves to pick up fresh produce and fruits from The Apple Lady, Leaf & Lyre, Country Thyme Farms, and Shirley's Greenhouses while talking about food with the U of C Aquaponics Club, the Communal Table program, Canadian Food Grains Bank and more! I kept hearing people asking "when's the next market?" amidst exclamations of "this is so, so cool!" or "this is great!" I was floored by the responses, but not surprised: campus wants healthy, local food! Yes!
