Hundreds of students, faculty and Foggy Bottom residents descended upon Kogan Plaza to enjoy an array of vegetables, fruits and hand-made goods at the Farmer’s Market Wednesday. Organizer Josh Singer called the turnout “unbelievable,” hailing the event as a “great success.”
Singer added that most of the vendors did well at the market, peddling their goods to eager customers. University officials including University President Stephen Joel Trachtenberg and Vice President for Government Relations Richard Sawaya passed through the plaza.
Vice President for Student and Academic Support Services Robert Chernak was spotted buying a raisin loaf, Singer said.
Most of the vendors will be asked to come back for the next Farmer’s Market, which Singer hopes can take place in mid-November.
” This was an event that brought the community together,” Singer said. “It was great to see students and Foggy Bottom residents coming together.”
