Once again there will be Farmers’ Market at Corvinus with autumn seasonal productsOnce again, former and current students will bring their produce in front of Building C.
Date: Tuesday 3 October 2023, 9:30-15:30
Venue: Corvinus University, the square in front of building C
The first Corvinus Farmers’ Market which was held in May in front of building C of the university, exceeded expectations . Thanks to its great success, the citizens of the university and other visitors will be able to buy local and sustainable produce again in the autumn semester.
Current and former students will be among the producers, so talking to them will be an opportunity to learn about their produce and to hear their stories about their journey from the classroom to their family or own farm.
The market is expected to offer a selection of autumn seasonal vegetables and fruits, dairy products, fruit juice, honey, cheese, chilli products, microgreens, syrups, jams, strudels, pies and meat products. When shopping, be sure to bring a canvas bag so that the produce can be packed in sustainable packaging, and cash, as card payment will not always be accepted.
We hope the event will be a big success again, as 60 % of students would shop and 35 % of students would possibly buy at the weekly farmers’ market on the university campus. This was the finding of a research that assessed farmers’ markets from an economic and social perspective, which has been written about in detail here.
The market is organised by the staff of the Department of Agricultural Economics of the Institute of Sustainable Development, Gréta Maró, PhD student at Corvinus, Áron Török, Head of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Zalán Márk Maró, Assistant Lecturer at the Department.
