Campus Fresh: College Town Farmers Markets in Michigan

Between the endless intake of hot dogs and burgers during tailgate season and the destructive stress-eating habits of finals season, it really does feel as though it’s impossible to stay healthy during college. Take it from this recent college grad – I know the feeling!

One thing I learned in college is that many times, the first step in staying healthy begins with simply knowing where to go for healthy food options. This is especially hard for college students who are moving to a campus away from their hometowns and have no idea where to go for something fresh and wholesome.

Navigating a new campus is hard enough, let alone going on a search for a go-to place for healthy food. Not to worry. Check out this round up of friendly neighborhood farmers markets near college campuses around Michigan. There might be one closer to your school than you think!
