Every Thursday while classes are in session, SUNY New Paltz holds a Farmers Market between 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Kaitlin Van Pelt, of the campus ancillary service, has run the market since 2009. During the winter months, the farmers market is held in the Lecture Center. Several Tables are set up with produce from local farms and bakeries to promote small business and healthy eating habits among students. In addition, there are a few tables set up to promote clubs and campus services to increase student awareness about social issues or campus services, such as the Career Resource Center table run by Ben Sweet. Students can find an assortment of fresh vegetables,cheeses, and baked goods.
