A Weekly Tradition
Each week Warren Wilson College hosts our own Farmer’s Market in the middle of campus, open to campus and our local community. Our market sells fresh vegetables (often harvested by our Garden Crew that day) as well as Warren Wilson meat, Warren Wilson herb products, cut flowers, Warren Wilson honey and baked goods.
An Education That Feeds You
The Farmer’s Market is one example of Warren Wilson’s applied learning model at work. Students involved in the Market develop many skills, including:
- Agriculture: cultivating and growing fruits and vegetables
- Marketing: designing the packaging, display, and signage for the market
- Economics: developing pricing structures and evaluating return on investment
- Sales: engaging with customers
