April 2013 marked the third year of Lincoln University’s Farmers Market and aquaculture program. The Farmers’ Market is open to the public and provided a venue in which locally grown commodities were sold at a nominal cost to the community. On the University farms, MANRRS members planted and harvested various fruits (watermelons and cantaloupe) and vegetables (peppers, collard greens, okra, cucumbers, black-eye peas, cabbage, tomatoes, lettuce, and sweet potatoes) as well as raised and marketed prawns and striped bass. In addition, heirloom seeds were packaged, promoted and sold. On Saturdays, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. during the summer and fall semesters, fresh vegetables and fruit were sold to residents of Cole County. Chapter members also distributed nutritional information and recipes for the products sold.
