Fee: $300 cost for setup materials, profitable to farmers market
Timeline: Although fall season
The goal of the on campus farmers market is to popularize healthy eating habits among students at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This idea of selling healthy non GMO grown food on campus will be partnered with local community gardeners around the city, and enhance the method of sustainable living on campus. Vendors and spots will be provided, the main targeted area will be the quad, where most students walk through everyday on their way to class. The market will accept all sorts of method of payment so, students will not have any challenges paying. It is said that eighty percent of the students at UIC commutes or doesn’t live in the university residential dorms. Which means, most of them doesn’t have the campus meal plans and cooks on their own, this a very thoughtful idea to transform students to making better health choices as they live.
