Fresno State Farm Market noted in C magazine

Fresno State’s Farm Market stepped into the state spotlight this month with a mention in C magazine.

Santa Monica-based C promotes itself as the first magazine devoted to the style of California, including a monthly “insider’s perspective” on a city in the state. For the January issue, Fresno resident Mimi Fanucchi and Fresno State alumna, wrote about various aspects of Fresno.

“Eating out is a treat, but cooking at home for family and friends is a pleasure,” she wrote. “I shop the student-run Fresno State Farm Market for the freshest meats, dairy products and seasonal fruits and vegetables.”

The magazine is available at Borders or Barnes and Noble bookstores.

The Farm Market, now in its 20th year, is on the northeast edge of the campus, at Chestnut and Barstow avenues, featuring products from the University Farm with proceeds benefiting Fresno State’s ag programs. Students are involved in the growing, development, packaging and marketing of the products sold in the Farm Market.

In December, wine tastings were introduced at the market and will be held throughout the year, helping acquaint customers with award-winning Fresno State wines.

The Farm Market is open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.

In appreciation of the community’s support of the Farm Market and the Fresno State agriculture program, a 10 percent discount will be offered on all purchases made at the Farm Market through Saturday, Jan. 12.

The market is open during reconstruction of the Chestnut-Barstow intersection as part of the widening of Chestnut. Access is available via detours from Barstow to the west and from Shaw and Woodrow avenues on the south side of the campus. A map showing access routes to the Farm Market is at:
