Farmers Market is a marketplace that brings fresh, locally sourced produce and goods to the campus. The goal of the market is to support sustainable agriculture and farming practices. When you purchase from the market, you incorporate sustainable practices into your daily life.

The Market hosts over 15 local vendors who offer a variety of locally grown produce, handmade products, and freshly made foods. Among the selection of seasonal produce, you can find fresh tomatoes, oranges, and strawberries. All produce is picked at its peak of ripeness. Vendors sell pre-packaged snacks such as glazed nuts, dried fruit, and salsa. Some favorites among students include fresh strawberries, homemade hummus and pita chips, pupusas, and sushi.

In an effort to reach CSUN’s Zero Waste 2025 goals, we encourage those eating at the Farmers Market to bring your own utensils, containers, and straws. All of these items can be purchased at any CSUN Dining location.
