Beginning in 2014, Aquinas partnered with Metro Health to bring a farm market to campus. Every Monday, the market features vendors including produce farmers, a bread maker, a flower stand, jewelers, a metal and wood worker among others.
The partnership with Metro Health allows for the market to be included with state programs such as WIC and Seniors Project FRESH, which expands the community in which we can serve. For added convenience, the market vendors also accept major credit cards.
Metro Health and Aquinas College share a commitment to healthy living and sustainability and will utilize the weekly market to provide opportunities for education.
