On Wednesdays from 11 am to 3 pm, don’t miss the chance to pick up fresh fruits and veggies on campus at the Gaucho Certified Farmers Market. Head to the North Library Mall in the middle of campus, between North Hall and Campbell Hall.
The Gaucho Certified Farmers Market is an avenue for staff, students, faculty, and the local community to access fresh, locally grown produce and artisan goods. Their goal is to bring together all facets of sustainability, helping to educate the UCSB community on healthy eating and living.
The market kicked off its first day on October 23, 2013 and is still going strong.
Products such as fresh bread, honey, jams and popcorn are offered by local farms including Ellwood Canyon Farms, Pepper Creek Family Farms, Underwood Family Farms, Tamai Family Farm and Rodriguez Brothers. By defining “local” as anything grown or produced in the Tri-County area (Santa Barbara, Ventura, San Luis Obispo), the market acts as a platform to promote the rich bounty of the Central Coast.
