The Kennesaw State University Farmers’ Market is a completely student-run initiative that brings only the highest quality produce, baked goods and other goodies directly to the KSU community. They work in direct collaboration with KSU Culinary & parent organization, Students for Environmental Sustainability (SES), in order to provide a family-friendly and economically-charged business atmosphere for students, faculty members and the small business owners they serve.

As a university farmers market, their Market Management team strives to find only the most passionate business owners to sell their products on campus. For many students and faculty members, the quality and convenience of good delicious food is not always an option. Students living on campus are cramped for time and cannot always go shopping for themselves whenever the opportunity arises. Faculty members are oftentimes stuck in their offices with only a minimal amount of time to spend outdoors around campus.

The KSU Farmers Market was founded in order to provide a revolutionary new marketplace alternative to traditional grocery shopping. Through interactions with the business owners themselves, market-goers experience a new level of shopping; one that is worthy of the academic environment it is based upon.
