Doug Sabel, Manager Purchasing Operations

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

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-Legal Considerations

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

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
