The farmers market

The Farmers Market


History

History

  • The Lafayette Farmers Market has been in operation since 1839.

  • The Free-Press of April 25, 1846, told about action by the Lafayette Town Board to buy a strip of ground 30 feet wide fronting on [what is now Fifth street between Main and Columbia. This would permit widening the public street, already platted as 60 feet side, into a 90-foot space a block long for a "market house" to be built for $936.31.


More history

More History

  • An 1885 lawsuit contended that in about April 1876 the City of Lafayette had torn down the marketing house as well as the public benches. As a result the marketing activity had stopped and the full 90 feet was being used as a public street.

More History

  • Then in July 1878, the suit continued, the City Council made the block "a station for unemployed and licensed drays." Drays were horse-drawn wagons, usually transporting freight, unloading or loading freight, or waiting to be loaded.

  • Eventually this transportation hub took on the form of a market for trading fresh farm goods where it remains today.


The idea for a campus market

The Idea For a Campus Market

  • Michele Wing, Physical Facilities HR Specialist and Employee Wellness Ambassador had the idea of having a Purdue Farmers Market in 2008

  • Several other universities across the country had markets and reported success

  • Michele proposed the benefit of easy access to fresh fruits and vegetables as part of the university strategic plan for employee wellness and sustainability

  • The market would also support local growers


Political challenges

Political Challenges

Solutions-Political Issues

  • Greater Lafayette Commerce (GLC) owns the Market

  • In collaboration with GLC we determined that the Purdue Market would be a positive

  • The Purdue Market would not interfere with the Lafayette or West Lafayette Markets

  • The market vendors would support a Purdue Market depending on the day and time.


Solutions campus issues

Solutions-Campus Issues

  • From 3PM to 6PM was the best time

  • The Alumni Center parking lot was the best location

  • Needed approvals from Physical Facilities, Parking, Police, Legal Counsel, HR, Food Stores, REM, Risk Management, VP’s

  • Michele Wing, Purdue point of contact


Solutions legal considerations

Solutions-Legal Considerations

  • GLC owns the Market

  • Needed a contract for GLC to manage the Purdue Market

  • The vendors contract with GLC

  • GLC established the rules of the Purdue Market in collaboration with Purdue


Solutions legal considerations1

Solutions-Legal Considerations

  • County Board of Health conducts inspections and issues permits to the vendors

  • Purdue does its own inspection and verifies Board of Health permit

  • GLC requires permits and inspections and keeps records

  • Purdue liability is mitigated through the GLC and vendor contracts
