Lincoln, Neb. —The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources is seeking campus partners to participate in the inaugural East Campus Discovery Days and Farmer’s Market, which will take place on three Saturdays this summer.

The events will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 12, July 10 and Aug. 14 and will feature fresh produce and handmade goods from area farmers and artisans, live music, food trucks, family activities and much more.

“I’m thrilled to see a farmer’s market coming to East Campus, which has been a cornerstone of agriculture in Nebraska for more than 100 years,” said Mike Boehm, NU vice president and Harlan vice chancellor for IANR. “This new series of events present a wonderful opportunity to invite our neighbors to experience a bit of UNL’s efforts to sustainably provide food, feed, fuel and fiber for a growing world; tour our beautiful campus; and learn about some of the amazing things taking place here.”
