The UASU FARMERS' MARKET IS BACK!
Join us February 16th, 2023 in the Student's Union Building from 10:00am - 3:00pm!
The University of Alberta Students' Union Farmer’s Market (UAFM) is a monthly market operating out of the Student’s Union Building (SUB) at the University of Alberta. Our mission is to provide the campus community with local, sustainable and ethical goods and services. We achieve this by hosting a variety of local businesses, makers and artisans monthly during the academic year. We serve as a gathering place where the campus community can engage with our vendors, as well as sustainability focused student groups and community partners. We also provide students with enriching volunteer experiences, during which they are able to participate in all aspects of the markets operations and contribute to making decisions about its overall direction. Bring Your Own Bag select Thursdays between 10am and 3pm.
