East Tennessee Publishes on the Process to Create a Campus-Based Farmers Market

Three doctoral students at the East Tennessee State University College of Public Health have published an article in the Journal of Hunger and Environmental Nutrition on “The Development and Implementation of a Student-Led Farmers’ Market on a Public University Campus”. In 2011, Ms. Rachel Ward, Mr. David Blackley, and Mr. Billy Brooks were among a group of graduate public health students that visualized the need for a farmers market on the campus of East Tennessee State University. While there has been significant interest in establishing farmers markets, including on college campuses, the authors found few published reports on a process to effectively create such markets on a college campus, especially at a university without a strong agricultural tie.
