While scientists at the N.C. Research Campus study fruits and vegetables, people can buy fresh produce at the campus starting next week.
The new Campus Farmers Market will open at 4 p.m. Thursday, featuring locally grown fruits and veggies, as well as canned and baked goods.
Kannapolis should make this “the summer we commit to a healthier lifestyle and support the farmers of our region,” said Phyllis Beaver, marketing director for the Research Campus.
The farmers market will operate from 4 to 7 p.m. every Thursday until Halloween in Cannon Village, located at 249 West Ave. between Transit Damaged Furniture and the Perfect Choice.
Consumers can learn firsthand from growers where and how their food is grown.
The market will offer free recipes and other educational materials to teach consumers how to choose and prepare fruits and veggies. Beaver suggests coming out each Thursday evening to plan weekend menus from the food available at the market.
The market is co-sponsored by N.C. State University, the N.C. Extension Service, Castle & Cooke North Carolina and the Piedmont Farmers Market, which holds five seasonal markets at four locations in Cabarrus County each week.
At Thursday’s kick-off, Michael and Gaynell Lambert will provide entertainment on guitar, banjo, keyboard and vocals.
David H. Murdock, who owns real estate giant Castle & Cooke and Dole Food Co., is building the $1.5 billion N.C. Research Campus in Kannapolis.
