A brief description of the farmers’ market:

USF hosts a weekly “Bulls Market” (http://msc.usf.edu/bullmarket.htm) that allows local vendors to sell local products on campus. Annually, the university hosts “Local Motive” (http://usfweb3.usf.edu/absoluteNM/templates/?a=2292&z=43), a food oriented local market. The food service provider for the university recently approved a weekly farmers’ market on campus to be held in conjunction with Bulls Market.

There are numerous farmers’ markets that service the USF community, including Sweetwater Community Organic Farm (www.sweetwater-organic.org), Tampa Bay Farmers’ Market (http://www.tampabayfarmersmarket.com), Tampa Wholesale Produce Market (http://tampa.creativeloafing.com/gyrobase/the_super_market/Content?oid=1446), Seminole Heights Sunday Morning Market (www.sundaymorningmarket.com), Tampa Downtown Market (www.tampadowntownmarket.com), Ybor City Saturday Market (www.ybormarket.com), and many others (e.g., Downtown Sarasota Farmers Market, Saturday Morning Market, St. Petersburg).
