Summer Farm Festival showcases Fresno State produce

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Hundreds of people attended Fresno State's sixth annual Summer Farm Festival on Saturday.

The festival celebrates the summer season and showcases the student run market and its products.

Students grow the fruits and the vegetables and then sell them to the public.

The Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market at Fresno State sold several hundred thousand ears of corn as well as tomatoes and grapes.

The store even sells organic eggplant, squash and other veggies.

On Saturday the students also took shoppers on tours to show them how their produce is raised in the field.
